Sex Offender Registry


Dear Internet User,

The sexual offender registry is a means to provide you with notice of the location of certain individuals, who have a previous conviction of certain sexual offenses. This registry should not be construed as a form of punishment, but as a necessary step that is being taken to inform you of the background of these individuals.

Therefore this information should be used by you in a responsible way, such as taking it into consideration while you make day to day decisions regarding the supervision of children, or to take any appropriate steps that you may feel is necessary to limit a child's contact with those listed in the registry. In order for this system to work, and to continue in the future, it is important that it not be used as a catalyst to disrupt neighborhoods, or as a tool to retaliate against those who may have been convicted, and punished for their crimes. Please use this information responsibility in order for us to be able to provide a safe community for our children.
