Jim Tibbs, chairman of the state Board of Correction, said, "I'm equally concerned, because you may have some violent sex offenders who have topped out on their sentence, they're not on parole, they're not on probation, so really all they have to do is register."
He added, "The No. 1 concern for the department and for the director is public safety, so he and his staff are doing everything that they can with the resources that they have available to ensure public safety is not compromised."But, he noted, "They have a limited budget."

Fulfilling a promise made in his inaugural address five weeks ago, Governor Jim Risch Tuesday named Jim Tibbs of Boise to serve as the drug czar for Idaho.
Tibbs will resign from the Idaho Board of Correction to take the drug czar position.
"I certainly support [Governor] Risch's effort and if he's going to pick a drug czar, Tibbs is great person."
"As I looked for an individual who could do all of that, Jim Tibbs came to the forefront as someone with outstanding credentials and the ability to cooperatively develop a statewide plan to combat the problem."
In creating the position Governor Risch signed Executive Order 2006-23 that outlined the duties and powers of the drug czar.The order establishes the drug czar as the official "to oversee the coordination of all drug initiatives with the State of Idaho."The position reports to the Governor and the appointee serves at the pleasure of the Chief Executive.
Tibbs said he was honored by the selection and looked forward to the challenge of the newly created position.
"In my 34 years of law enforcement and now as an elected official I have seen the growth of illegal drug use and the serious problem it poses for society," the veteran cop noted."It will be a challenge to identify the programs, review their strengths and weaknesses and put in place an effective plan for coordination of services throughout the state," said Tibbs.
