How can you find out if there are any sex offenders living nearby or in your neighborhood?
If you want to find out about possible sex offenders in your neighborhood, your best bet would be to visit your state’s sex offender registry website. These typically cover only certain categories of offenders, such as those with risk assessment scores of Level 2 (Intermediate) or Level 3 (High).
To make things simple, the FBI keeps a detailed list of all the state sites: Sex offender registries for states, territories and tribes. On those sites, you should have the options to search the database by a sex offender’s name, get ZIP Code and city/county listings, find detailed personal profile information on each registrant, and use a map app to search your neighborhood.
If you have a specific person you’re looking for, the U.S. Department of Justice maintains The Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender Public Website (NSOPW), which allows you to search nationally by name. Start your search of the National Sex Offender Public Website here.
Canadians: At this time, Canada does not allow public access to the sex offender registry. Get the details from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police site.
