Assembly Bill 488, signed by the Governor in September 2004, now requires specific information about persons required to register as sex offenders be posted on the Attorney General’s Internet web site on or before July 1, 2005.We are pleased to announce that the information is available online at:
The California Megan’s Law Internet site provides the public with detailed information on more than 63,000 registered sex offenders, including those currently incarcerated.
The Internet site provides home addresses for about 33,500 of the state’s most serious sex offenders. Additionally, viewers can see if an individual is in violation of their registration requirement and the date they fell out of compliance.
You can search the web site by city, county or Zip Code; or by park, school or individual area.
California’s Megan’s Law provides the public with certain information on the whereabouts of sex offenders so that members of our local communities can protect themselves and their children.The law is not intended to punish the offender and specifically prohibits using the information to harass or commit any crime against the offender.
