Other information on this website is compiled from reports by local law enforcement.
Much of that information is gathered from persons who are required to register as sex offenders and to provide, at least once a year, their addresses and other information to local law enforcement. Because information can change quickly, and there may be gaps in data received, the California Department of Justice makes no representation, either express or implied, that the information on this site is complete or accurate. Neither the Department of Justice nor the State of California shall be held responsible for any errors or omissions on this website or produced by secondary dissemination of this information.
Extreme care must be taken in the use of information because mistaken identification may occur when relying solely upon name, age and address to identify individuals. Notice of Corrections. If you believe that any information on this site is in error, please contact a police or sheriff's department, or contact the Department of Justice by e-mail at MegansLaw doj.
Legal and Illegal Uses. The information on this website is made available solely to protect the public. The legislature finds that sexual offenders present a significant risk of reoffense and that efforts of law enforcement agencies to protect their communities, conduct investigations and quickly apprehend offenders who commit sexual offenses are impaired by the lack of current information available about individuals who have been convicted of sexual offenses who live within their jurisdiction.
The legislature further finds that providing public access to certain information about convicted sexual offenders assists parents in the protection of their children. Such access further provides a means for organizations that work with youth or other vulnerable populations to prevent sexual offenders from threatening those served by the organizations. Finally, public access assists the community in being observant of convicted sexual offenders in order to prevent them from recommitting sexual crimes. Supplemental Registry. Wanted Sex Offenders.
