Division of Criminal Justice Services


The Sex Offender Registration Act requires the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) to maintain the state’s Sex Offender Registry and a directory available online that only includes individuals designated as having a medium risk of re-offense (Level 2) or high risk of re-offense (Level 3).

DCJS works to ensure that the information in the Registry is accurate and complete. All information in the Registry, however, is reported to the agency by other sources. As a result, DCJS makes no express or implied guarantee concerning the accuracy or completeness of this data.

Members of the public who believe that any information about a registered individual is incorrect, may contact the Registry.
