In the United States, sex offenders are subject to a registry that is searchable by the public. The registry is maintained by the United States Department of Justice and includes the name, date of birth, and social security number of every registered sex offender in the country. The registry is available to the public through the internet and can be searched by name, zip code, or state.
The registry is a valuable resource for law enforcement and the public. It allows law enforcement to identify and track sex offenders, and the public can use the registry to stay safe from sex offenders. The registry is also a valuable tool for sex offenders who want to find out if they are registered.
