Randolph is required to register as a sex offender and must report any change of address to the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry.

Sex offenders have always lived in our communities, but it was not until the Sex Offender Registration and Community Notification Law was enacted that law enforcement was able to share this information with the community. Abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate, or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated, the sheriff’s office said.
