When you search the state database, you have several options. If you are looking for a particular person, you can type in as much or as little information as you know.
TO VIEW A LIST:
In most cases, you will want to do a very broad search. Simply typing your ZIP code into the search tool will give you a list (with photos if they are available) of every registered sex offender who shares your ZIP code.
TO VIEW A MAP:
Further down on the database search form, you will find the option to search within a 1-5 mile radius of an address you choose. Typing in your address will build a map that pinpoints the home (and in some cases, the work address) of every registered sex offender and predator within 1-5 miles of your home.
