Map information from the Illinois Sex Offender Registry.
Patch wants to help Lake in the Hills parents keep their kids safe this Halloween.
As your little ones and not-so-little-ones prepare to go door to door for trick-or-treating this Halloween, Patch offers a map of our town's registered sex offenders.
Genearlly, sex offender laws center on offenders registering in person each year at the local police department. They must do so for a required 10-year registration period, unless they are separately required to register for life. Offenders are prohibited from living within 500 feet of a school, daycare center, youth center or other facility that caters to children younger than 18 years old.
Sex Offenders in Your Neighborhood
A search of the Illinois Sex Offender Registry shows nine registered sexual predators residing in Lake in the Hills.
How the Map Works
The map is interactive, meaning you can zoom in, zoom out, or move it around to see all the plotted points.
Floating your cursor over one of the markers will give you the name of the sex offender and his address. Clicking on the marker will give you more information about the specific charge.
The term refers to anyone convicted after July 1, 1999 of certain violations in the Criminal Code of 1961. Sexual predators are required to register for their entire lives.
