During the week of April 17–24, OffenderWatch team members Mark Wilson, Business Development Manager, and Don Thanars, Territory Manager, completed four Kansas area training sessions conducted at law enforcement agencies in Rooks County, Lyon County, Sedgwick County, and Ford County.

The well attended sessions included two representatives from the Kansas Bureau of Investigations whose overall responsibility is for the state sex offender registry, as well as 40 users representing 16 agencies from around the state. Also in attendance were several prospect agencies from surrounding areas.

Wilson and Thanars achieved their objectives to provide refresher and more in-depth training on underutilized or unused areas of the OffenderWatch application, including TIPS and the Kansas transaction log.

Additionally, they provided updates on OffenderWatch development efforts and add-on product offerings, including the new OffenderWatch app, a FREE Family Safety app offered to the public.

The training sessions were very beneficial to all participants and a positive step towards enhancing relationships with existing customers, expanding OffenderWatch’s footprint in Kansas, and continuing to help partners use the industry’s leading network to its full potential to help prevent the unthinkable.
