Hello Paxton,

I talked with the West Union Police Chief and, in this area, it is up to the Parole Office to set the guidelines for what the person can and cannot do. They know the history for the sex offender and if he follows guidelines. Here, they are not allowed in our parks (ball games) or at the aquatic center. Personally, I would not want to be responsible for saying a registered sex offender can or cannot attend his child’s game. In my opinion, the risk is too great to deal with.
