Parents of school children in Jefferson Parish can now be notified every time a registered sex offender is in their area as part of a new initiative to prevent sex abuse.

The Sheriff’s Office is joining forces with the TASK team. That stands for "teaching awareness to school kids."

Sheriff Newell Normand says there are 1,022 registered sex offenders in Jefferson Parish. He says it’s important to always know your neighbor. Parents of children in Jefferson Parish should expect their kids to receive a brochure about the TASK program. They’re asking parents to talk to their children about sexual abuse and how to prevent it.
