GREENVILLE, Ohio(WDTN) - Darke County Sheriff's Deputies are always on the lookout.
With more than 200,000 people expected to attend the Darke County Fair this year, there are lots of opportunities for crime.
But, deputies are trying to cut down on that.
One way they're doing that is by using a notebook, filled with mugshots and information about Registered Sex Offenders in the county.
"There's a lot of people we're looking for that feel like they can come to the fair and have a good time and go unnoticed and that's why we're trying to accelerate our efforts," explains Sgt. Mike Burns.
Sgt. Burns says parents also need to watch for suspicious behavior.
They too can access the list of registered sex offenders by going to the sheriff's website.
Sgt. Burns says technology is helping them curb crime.
"We've found it to be very successful, able to accomplish more and get a lot more tips and input and follow leads, than we've ever been able to before," comments Sgt. Burns.
New this year at the fair, are free ID bracelets for all kids.
Parents are applauding the extra security measures.
"That's awesome. That's great. They didn't do this when we were kids and I was here everyday," says Paula Brooks.
"I think it's a good service for the people of Darke County," comments Michelle Ruble.
Deputies also have a book of most wanted suspects and parolees.
