ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty County Sheriff's Office is making sure that members of the community are familiar with the sex offender registry laws and how they work.

In a question and answer style forum, sex offender registrar Rebecca Cranford explained how the county protects members of the community. She urged those in attendance to go online and access the database to see if there is an offender living near them. Cranford also explained the new sex offender management program that the county has in place to further protect citizens.

"It helps with tracking, monitoring, keeping up with registered sex offenders, sharing, exchanging information, with the other agencies and the other counties in other state of Georgia. I have access to information on registered sex offenders in other states as well,  if those states also utilize the same sex offender management program," said Cranford.

She also explained that the only ways to be removed from the registry is to pass away or to be removed from the list by the Sheriff's Office.
