NATCHITOCHES — The story is frightening: A young girl recognizes the man's face her mother is viewing on a computer screen, telling her that same man has been following her school bus.

The man turned out to be a twice-convicted Tier III sex offender barred from contact with children. He soon was arrested again after the mother's call to law enforcement.

It's a true story, Julio Perez said on Wednesday as he and other Natchitoches Parish officials gathered to announce the launch of a program that aims to get parents talking to their kids about the dangers of sex offenders.

"Everywhere we go, parents are not aware of who and where these offenders live in their community," said Perez, the executive assistant director of the OffenderWatch Initiative.

Notification IS prevention. It’s a simple message, but it means and says so much. Knowledge empowers people to make better, more informed decisions.

On January 17th, Michael Prudhomme turned himself into the Albuquerque Police Department. His identity was made public through the media, billboards, and local law enforcement. The knowledge of this dangerous individual, who was wanted for or Cruelty Towards a Child-Great Bodily Harm and Battery Against a Household Member, was so pervasive that it became impossible for Prudhomme to stay away from justice.

Knowledge was what made the difference. In a collaborative effort between the media and law enforcement, the public was notified of Prudhomme’s criminal status, and ultimately it was their knowledge that brought him to justice. Notification works.
