Megan’s Law

Arming the Community With Information
California’s Megan’s Law arms the public with certain information on the whereabouts of dangerous sex offenders so that local communities may protect themselves and their children. The law also authorizes local law enforcement to notify the public about high-risk and serious sex offenders who reside in, are employed in, or frequent the community.

The law is not intended to punish the offender and specifically prohibits using the information to harass or commit any crime against the offender. It recognizes that public safety is best served when registered sex offenders are not concealing their location to avoid harassment.

Visit the Office of the Attorney General for the State of California’s official Megan’s Law resource website to search for registered offenders in your area.
