Updated: 4 years ago.

Oconee County sheriff Scott Berry says he's glad to see that a private organization dedicated to keeping track of registered sex offenders is now operating in Georgia.

Berry says sheriffs are required to keep track of sex offenders,and the help of New York-based Parents for Megan's Law is welcome.The group recently expanded its activities to Georgia. The nonprofit group uses retired New York Police Department investigators to check out tips and then let officials know an offender might be involved in prohibited activities.

Berry says keeping track of registered sex offenders is a daunting task and the group's help is useful.The organization says it also has an e-mail alert system that can notify people if a registered sex offender has moved to their area.
