Tehama County Sheriff’s Office Employee Receives National Recognition for Excellence in Managing Sex Offender Registry – Lisa Callaway recognized for overseeing county’s 300+ sex offenders

TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. (Nov. 14, 2019)—An employee with the Tehama County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) received national recognition today for excellence in overseeing the county’s 322 sex offenders. OffenderWatch recognized Lisa Callaway for excelling in meeting the sex offender registry (SOR) objectives. Members of the SOR team ensure complete, accurate and comprehensive offender records; track offenders moving in and out of the city; and promote inter-agency cooperation with the U.S. Marshals Service investigating and locating absconded offenders.

TCSO uses the management software tool OffenderWatch to keep track of registered sex offenders, often using the system to aid in investigations and proactively improve public safety. Calloway was chosen to receive the award out of 14,000 OffenderWatch users from more than 3,000 agencies. Callaway accepted the award during a ceremony at the sheriff’s office Thursday.

“Lisa is a hardworking, long time employee. She is a key person in a key position. Well done Lisa, you have earned this award and recognition. Thanks to Offender Watch for recognizing Lisa Callaway and her very important long term contribution to public safety!” said Sheriff Dave Hencratt.

“Sex offender management is a priority in Tehama County, with Sheriff Dave Hencratt and his office working together to go above and beyond what is required in statute. Sheriff Hencratt, Lisa and the staff work very hard to collect comprehensive data on every offender in their jurisdiction so that the public has all of the information necessary to protect themselves,” said Mike Cormaci, president of OffenderWatch.
TCSO is responsible for managing, tracking and verifying about 322 registered sex offenders in the jurisdiction. The office is also responsible for notifying the public of registered sex offenders.
