National and State Sex Offender

National and State Sex Offender Registries

President George W. Bush signed into law The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act on July 27, 2006, which includes a law to honor the memory of Dru Sjodin. This act aims to protect children and enhance public safety by facilitating access to information about registered sex offenders.


The Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender Public Website (NSOPW) is an unprecedented public safety resource that provides the public with access to sex offender data nationwide. This comprehensive and user-friendly website is a result of a partnership between the U.S. Department of Justice and state, territorial, and tribal governments, united in their commitment to ensuring the safety of adults and children.

The primary purpose of NSOPW is to serve as a centralized platform for individuals to search and obtain accurate and up-to-date information about registered sex offenders in their area. By bringing together the efforts of multiple jurisdictions, NSOPW maximizes the accessibility and effectiveness of sex offender data, allowing the public to make informed decisions regarding their safety and the safety of their loved ones.

State Sex Offender Searches

In addition to the Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender Public Search, NSOPW also offers the capability to conduct thorough searches of state-based sex offender registries. This means that users can obtain localized information on registered sex offenders, providing them with a comprehensive understanding of the potential threats in their specific region.

By combining national and state-level sex offender data, NSOPW empowers individuals to take an active role in safeguarding their communities. It is a valuable tool in ongoing efforts to prevent future crimes and protect vulnerable populations from harm.

Remember, knowledge is power, and NSOPW is here to ensure that you have the information you need to make informed decisions about your safety and the safety of those around you. Stay informed and stay safe!
