Welcome to the County of San Diego’s registered sex offender subscription page where you can register to receive automated email alerts about registered sex offenders in your area.
San Diego County is home to approximately 4,000 registered sex offenders. While the vast majority of these offenders remain compliant with the law, constant vigilance concerning their location and behaviors is warranted. State law allows citizens to access information about offenders via the Megan’s Law website.
The County of San Diego provides this notification as a service to you so that you can be informed if there are changes to the known sex offender population in your area. While this information may be helpful to you, the reality is that 80-90% of sexual offenses against children are by offenders who are known to the child and his or her family. So while stranger-danger is real, those closest to us and our families actually pose the greatest hazard. To help you learn more about the characteristic of sex offenders and what you can do to protect you and your family from harm, visit the resources section of this website.
Upon registering you will receive a personalized email notification each time there is a change of address for any registered sex offenders in your area. You do not need to create a user account, simply register your email address and define your area of interest. Subscribers will receive a notification by email only when there is an address change in the sex offender registry within your selected area of interest. You can subscribe to several different alerts using the same email address. Many users subscribe using their home, work or child’s school address. For more information, visit the Frequent Asked Questions page.
Extreme care must be taken in the use of this information because mistaken identification may occur when relying solely upon name, age or address to identify individuals.
This information is provided to you only as a service to assist you in preparing your family to avoid potentially harmful situations. While these individuals are included in the sex offender registry, neither the California Department of Justice nor the County of San Diego has considered or assessed the specific risk that any convicted sex offender will commit another offense or the nature of any future crimes that may be committed.
Only information on registered sex offenders allowed to be disclosed under California law will be included in notifications via this service. Under state law, some registered sex offenders are not subject to public disclosure. State law does not allow offenses other than the crimes for which the convicted sex offender is required to register to be disclosed through the public Megan’s Law website.
Information included in these notifications is compiled from information included in the sex offender registry, which is compiled from reports by local law enforcement, and subject to public disclosure. Much of that information is gathered from persons who are required to register as sex offenders and to provide, at least once a year, their addresses and other information to local law enforcement. Information can change quickly and there may be gaps in data received.
The County of San Diego makes no representation, either express or implied, that the information included in these notifications is complete or accurate. The County of San Diego is not responsible for any errors or omissions in these notices and/or information provided by the Megan’s Law website.
