In Chicago, law enforcement turns you away when you show up as required by law to verify your registration. Then they go out and arrest you for failing to register.
Every registered citizen in Douglas County, Nebraska, should read this.
You better demand a copy of the legally-mandated written and signed proof that you made your verification visit to the sheriff’s office. The Nebraska State Patrol says Douglas County should be giving you a hard copy of the signed paper. State law requires it. So don’t accept the sheriff’s office word when it says it has an electronic confirmation of your visit. Unless you own a copy of your signed and dated form, you are at the mercy of a law enforcement agency that believes you have no rights.
A cautionary tale: In Chicago, law enforcement routinely turns away hundreds of registrants who report as required for verification. Then law enforcement goes out and arrests those people for failing to register. That can happen in Douglas County, too. More on Chicago.
