Sex Offender Registry
The National Sex Offender Public Registry
by the Department of Justice—enables every citizen to search the
latest information from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and
Puerto Rico for the identity and location of known sex offenders.
To run a search: Enter the site, select the "I agree" button
under Conditions of Use, fill out the Search form, and select "Search."
You can also search registry websites maintained by individual states
by following the links below. Note: the information contained in the
national registry and the state registries is identical; the national
registry simply enables a search across multiple states.

Sex Offender Registry webpage for details on our role in developing and maintaining the registry.
