The West Virginia State Police received a $30,000 grant to develop a sex offender mapping program.
Police say the mapping system will save time in investigations of child abductions because one of the first steps taken is to locate convicted sex offenders living nearby. The system is expected to be ready by July.
The grant was provided by the West Virginia Technical Assistance Broad Band Grant Program.
