Megan's Law Database now online

You can now access California's sex offender registry online.

Taken directly from the California Dept. of Justice website:
"Welcome to the California Department of Justice's Internet web site, which lists designated registered sex offenders in California.

"As a result of a new law, this site will provide you with access to information on more than 63,000 persons required to register in California as sex offenders. Specific home addresses are displayed on more than 33,500 offenders in the California communities; as to these persons, the site displays the last registered address reported by the offender. An additional 30,500 offenders are included on the site with listing by ZIP Code, city, and county. Information on approximately 22,000 other offenders is not included on this site, but is known to law enforcement personnel."

The database is here.
