Jacob Wetterling Center: Too Much Spent Watching Sex Offenders

A representative the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center says too much money is spent keeping track of registered sex offenders, and not enough is spent on prevention.

Alison Feigh is quoted in a story by television station KAAL-TV.

“We need to use our resources differently,” she said. “And it shouldn’t be all-in on using resources to watch sex offenders.”

The problem, according to Feigh, is prevention efforts don’t get a lot of money.

“We have so few resources in prevention; we want to use our resources on things that work,” she said.
