One of the ways to be proactive about safety is by staying informed of who is living and working in your neighborhood. A sex offender registry is a list of all convicted sex offenders in a state. Sex offender registries generally include the offender's address, physical appearance, and criminal history. All fifty states require individuals convicted of certain sex crimes to register. Those convicted of more violent crimes are typically required to remain registered for a longer period and to update their address more frequently.
A sex offender registry is a system in various countries designed to allow government authorities to keep track of the activities of sex offenders , including those who have completed their criminal sentences. In some jurisdictions, where sex offender registration can, registration is accompanied by residential address notification requirements. In many jurisdictions, registered sex offenders are subject to additional restrictions, including on housing. Those on parole or probation may be subject to restrictions that do not apply to other parolees or probationers. Sometimes, these include or have been proposed to include restrictions on being in the presence of underage persons under the age of majority , living in proximity to a school or day care center, owning toys or items targeted towards children, or using the Internet.
