In January 2009, the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office established a program to deal with the growing population of Sexual Predators and Offenders within Habersham County. The SPOT unit works closely with state and local law enforcement agencies in monitoring high risk sex offenders and predators.
Since its inception, the SPOT unit has been very successful in tracking offenders that attempt to abscond from probation or their registration requirements. The unit is responsible for insuring that the community is notified of known sexual predators that move into their neighborhoods. Many hours of surveillance are conducted on high risk offenders. The SPOT unit will conduct quarterly sweeps in Habersham County to insure offenders are complying with their conditions of probation and registration requirements. SPOT unit Deputy Justin Williams is available for community meetings and to assist the community in the area of sexual offender and predator issues.
