SEX CRIME UNIT / SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT
Since 2005 there have been several revisions of the Alabama Sexual Offender Registration Act. This has tasked law enforcement agencies to monitor and record all previously convicted sexual offenders. Sgt. Pete Taylor, Investigator Charles Radke and Compliance Cooridnator Cindy Crowell’s duties include registration, reporting and investigating non-compliant sexual offenders. The most important is protecting the children of Morgan County and aiding in the prosecution of sexual offenders.
Sheriff Ana Franklin feels that community awareness of these predators is essential for the protection of the citizens.
Investigators in this department also work in coordination with other agencies to investigate all cases that involve child abuse, sexual exploitation of children, domestic violence, missing children and all sexual assaults. Investigators also works closely with the Morgan County DHR, The Children’s Advocacy Center and they are certified as a Drug Endangered Team Officer.
