The Union County Prosecutor’s Office Released Offenders Unit is responsible for ensuring that all convicted sex offenders residing in Union County have properly registered their residence, employment, and/or school attendance with the police department in the municipality in which they live. This includes verifying that the registrant does in fact reside at his or her given address and ensures the monitoring of offenders with local law enforcement to achieve compliance with the quarterly and annual address verification for each registrant residing in Union County.

The Unit also works closely with the New Jersey State Parole Board Sex Offender Management Unit and the GPS Monitoring Unit in investigating and prosecuting offenders who violate provisions of community supervision for life, parole supervision for life, or GPS conditions. The Unit also ensures that immediate notification is made to the GPS Unit of a Tier Three (high-risk) offender determination to coordinate the mandatory placement of the offender on GPS monitoring.
