Lyon County's efforts to oversee active registered offenders have led to a national honor for the department and one employee.

OffenderWatch recently recognized the Sheriff's Office and Amy Jackson for excellence in meeting sex offender registry objectives, including comprehensive and accurate records, tracking of offenders moving in and out of the county and interagency cooperation with the US Marshals Service.

The Sheriff's Office has used OffenderWatch for several years to keep tabs on about 200 registered drug, sex and violent offenders. It was chosen out of 3,000 different agencies that use the program.
