The Frederick County Sheriff's Office will soon receive over $24,000 from the state to help enforce Maryland sex offender registry and compliance laws.

The Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention announced Tuesday that it is giving about $700,000 to help local law enforcement agencies in their sex offender registration, compliance and enforcement efforts.

The money will be distributed to each Maryland county and the city of Baltimore, according to a press release from the governor's office. The funds will be used for ensuring that offenders register on the Maryland Sex Offender Registry, as well as compliance checks and monitoring.
