Ohio increasing efforts to protect from sex offenders
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- State officials are increasing efforts to protect families from sex offenders.
The goal is to protect families all across Ohio from people with checkered pasts.
It's a brand new function to the state's already existing database of registered sex offenders known as eSORN.
The state's sex offender task force will be able to track when, where and how registered sex offenders are attempting to make contact with children.
The new eSORN function will help officials put a stop to these dangerous relationships before they start.
A special announcement is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. Thursday in Columbus to introduce the new function.
There are nearly 18,000 registered sex offenders in the state of Ohio.
