Law enforcement agencies have no authority to direct where a sex offender lives or works.

Sex offenders have always lived in our communities: but it was not until the passage of this law (which mandates sex offender registration) that law enforcement could share this information with you. Any abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated and could potentially jeopardize our authority to keep the public informed.
Sex Offender Registry information shall not be used to commit a crime to engage in illegal discrimination or harassment of an registered offender.
