In conjunction with our participation in Operation Watchful Eye III, here are the local statistics for Bartow County Sheriff’s Office:

During September 2018, the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office participated in Operation Watchful Eye III, which is the state wide residence check of all registered sex offenders in the State of Georgia. Our county-wide operation was conducted on September 14th-19th and also on the 21st this year. Our goal was to verify the compliance of the residence requirement for each of the 216 sex offenders living in Bartow County during that time frame. We were successful in validating 214 of the 216 offenders. Two arrest warrants were issued for the two that were not verified with a residence (Violation of Sex Offender Registry). Assisting the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Registration Unit was the Court Services Division, Patrol Division, and the Cherokee Judicial Circuit Department of Community Supervision.

The Bartow County Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Registration Unit consists of two sworn deputies who work to ensure compliance with all sex offender laws in Georgia for those who reside in Bartow County.
