Supply, N.C. (WWAY) – A man registered as a sex offender was picked up at a Brunswick County school yesterday with the help of new technology. James Fowler was arrested at Supply Elementary School when he attempted to attend an awards ceremony hosted by the school.

Fowler, a registered sex offender, was arrested by a School Resource Officer after his license alerted school officials he was illegally on the school campus.

All visitors are required to check in at the main office of a public school building through an electronic verification system. The Ident-A-Kid system then logs visitors in and out, provides them a temporary identification sticker, and scans their drivers license or state identification card in order to cross reference the national sex-offender database.

That cross reference led police to arrest Fowler.

The school system says the visitor management system is just one of many other aspects of a comprehensive safety and security program
