What is the national sex offender registry?

The national sex offender registry is a public database that contains information about convicted sex offenders from around the United States. It includes each person’s name, address, physical details, related convictions and photo.

The database website combines sex offender registries from different jurisdictions and states. The list allows people to search for and identify sex offenders who live or work in their area. The Department of Justice registry is also used by law enforcement to monitor sex offenders in various communities.

Individuals charged with certain sex crimes may be required to register as a sex offender soon after charges are filed. They should be aware that their registration may also be available on the national sex offender registry.
