Gov. Beshear Touts Tech Services For Public Safety

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear says Kentucky crime
victims will have more information available under a wide-ranging technology plan he's announcing.

The governor says Kentucky's victim notification program is being upgraded, and state officials will have more information about former inmates, such as when they're re-arrested.

Justice Secretary J. Michael Brown says the state will be paying approximately $500,000 extra per year for the services. But Brown says the changes are likely to create savings elsewhere.

Among other things, Kentucky residents will have more information about registered sex offenders. Registered sex offenders' addresses will be mapped out on a Web site, and authorities will be notified when one winds up in jail.
