WAUKEGAN, Ill. (WLS) --Authorities are seeking help from the public in locating non-compliant sex offenders who live in the northern suburbs.
The Lake County Sheriff's Office released a list Tuesday of registered sex offenders who have active arrest warrants.
Registered sex offenders are required to physically appear at the proper sheriff's office or local police department for a weekly, quarterly or yearly registration. The sheriff's office is also responsible for checking the residential compliance of all sex offenders.
If a registered sex offender is determined to be non-compliant, sheriff's detectives seek an arrest warrant for the violation.
"These at-large sex offenders could be someone you see in the neighborhood, someone working at your local convenience store, or someone you see at local events. A tip from the public may be all it takes to aid in their apprehension," Sheriff Mark Curran said in a written release.
The Lake County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who recognizes one of these individuals, even if they are going by a different name, to call them at 847-549-5200 or Lake County Crime Stoppers at 847-662-2222.
