ALLEN PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

After a public hearing Monday night, the Allen Parish Police Jury voted unanimously to move forward with a resolution that would increase the rate of registration and renewal for sex offenders in the parish.

Under the resolution, new sex offenders will pay $400 to register in Allen. The annual renewal fee will be $100. Sex offenders already living and registered in the parish will only have to pay the renewal fee each year.

The resolution will be officially drafted and filed with the Clerk's Office before it is put into effect.
