Marlborough has 32 Level II offenders and 11 Level III offenders. Since the Patch site has gone live this past January, the total number has not really risen significantly. It appears this population is fairly transient. That said, there has been a recent influx (last 30 days) of registrations. I have spoken to a detective about this, and he said there is no apparent reason for this from the perspective of the department. If this keeps up though, I will be looking into the phenomenon in a more in depth fashion.

I be interested in any futher information, seems to a bit unusual considering the state site shows level 3 offenders remained same for months in Marlborough. I like to know more in how homeless offenders are monitored. I work with a similar population, and know risk of population increase in habitual level 3 offenders to be concerned as a parent.

I actually have an article almost ready to go on this particular case, but Patch has recently adopted stricter guidelines for reporting on stories like these. That said, I am getting the story to the place where it could be published, and hope that time is very soon. On your other point, I know that the state's website with those numbers is kept current. I checked last week and it counted 10 Level III offenders, yesterday there were 11. This individual because he is homeless, is required to register at the police station every 30 days.

thats great...i am a stones throw away from the police station...Not very comforting to know who is walking by my kids playing in the yard. In that said, I really hope your freedom to publish your article is not restricted and welcomed by parents Most of us are not on a witch hunt, as often why it fuels fear. It is our right to know facts on who the sex offenders are in our kids community we trust to be safe. As kids only can be, when we have informed parents.
