Highway Patrol Capt. Tim McGrail, who is in charge of the criminal records and identification division, said the state's registry is an information tool for the public, "not necessarily a tracking or monitoring device."He
said: "It's more accurate today than it was several years ago, because there are more checks and balances in place.
"I try to follow state law, policy, rules and regulations," McGrail
"It's hard for these sheriffs to go to their county commissioners and say I need two more officers to work on this," McGrail
foresees cooperation among county agencies similar to the Missouri Drug Task Force
, in which two or more counties could share resources to track noncompliant offenders.
