Summer is almost here and school is about to end.  Children will be packing the local parks and playgrounds.  This is an ideal time to take advantage of the Park County Sheriff’s OffenderWatch® sex offender notification and monitoring service.
 In Park County, there are currently 43 registered sex offenders and knowing where they live is an excellent way of enhancing your children’s safety.  The mapping and address feature found on the website pinpoints exactly where an offender lives and residents can even sign up for automatic email alerts should an offender move close within any address they register (the monitoring radius is specified upon registration). 
 “Registering for this confidential e-mail alert service allows our citizens to monitor important addresses, thereby keeping them up to date of newly registered offenders and making it unnecessary to have to check important addresses daily or even weekly,” said Sheriff Scott Steward.  “You can register any and all of the addresses where your children spend a lot of time, for example friends, grandparents, or babysitters addresses.  The alerts are in real-time and sent out via e-mail as soon as a new offender has registered with our office as required by law.”
The website can be found by clicking on the “SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY” link on the right hand side of this page.  Follow the instructions to check your neighborhood or other important addresses and sign up to receive e-mail alerts.  Also, be sure to check out our safety tips with many topics to review helping you and your family understand what you can do to help stay safe. 
“I encourage everyone to have a safe and fun summer,” concluded Sheriff Steward.  “Knowledge is power and knowing where the registered sex offenders reside in your area can help you make the best choices for safe and enjoyable summer activities.”

The Park County Search & Rescue Unit (SAR) recently trained with REACH Air Medical Services in topics such as helicopter safety and patient loading. REACH is a member of AirMedCare out of West Plains, Missouri and recently took over as the primary air ambulance serving all of Park County.

REACH offers services to SAR that the previous helicopter service denied. REACH will not only evacuate the injured from anywhere... in Park County but they will also assist in search operations and "insert" SAR members to assist with evacuation operations. Their guiding principle is: Always do what's best for the patient.

Primarily, SAR members under the guidance of REACH medical personnel trained to perform "hot loading" a patient. Hot loading refers to loading a patient while the helicopter is running. Often, time is the primary concern in patient evacuation, therefore crews can ill afford to shut down the helicopter in an emergency situation.

Residents and visitors can rest assured that the resources REACH provides combined with the capabilities of Park County Search and Rescue, insures that they have the best resources available should an emergency arise.
