My question is, why are they “tracked” if they have served their time? What a waste of taxpayer funds. I can just see them ramming through the same legislation for tax evaders, deadbeat dads and student loan defaulters.
Law enforcement uses this if something of a sex offense happens in that area, they will check on the sex offenders in the area. That might end up saving a victim's life (and I believe it has in the past).
A convicted felon must contact a parole officer when they get out of jail. I guess sex offenders must keep doing it.
Just as a convicted felon has lost certain rights, in a sense a sex offender has lost some rights.
If a child disappears in an area with a sex offended, police have been known to check the sex offenders (and I am pretty sure that have saved children's lives in the past).
