All states require that sex offenders register their addresses and that certain information about them be made available to the public for free. In most states you can view this information online.

It's important to know who is living in your neighborhood, but it's just as important to teach your children the safety rules so that they can learn to recognize and avoid danger.

Before accessing free state registries please note: the Polly Klaas® Foundation does not maintain the sex offender websites.

  • If you experience problems, please contact the webmasters of the registry pages.
  • Offender specific questions should be referred to the appropriate state officials.
  • If you do not find the information you need through the links below, please contact your local law enforcement agencies.
