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.

Sex Offenders are persons convicted of a criminal offense against a victim who is a minor or any dangerous sexual offense of this state, another state, territory, uniform code of military justice, or tribal court, must register within 72 hours after release from prison, placement on parole, supervised release or probation with the sheriff's office in the county where such person will reside. 

Sex Offenders in Habersham County can register at the Sheriff's Office, 1000 Detention Drive, Clarkesville, GA 30523.
