WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police say the concentration of registered offenders and parolees in the area is straining resources and posing risks to public safety.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Sedgwick County has the largest number of parolees and registered offenders in Kansas, with many coming from other counties or states.

The Kansas Department of Corrections released 1,269 people under parole supervision to Sedgwick County last fiscal year, which ended June 30. Just 360 parolees were released to Johnson County, which has a bigger population.
