Sex Offender Registry
Sex offenders target youth and child serving agencies both for work and volunteering. The State of Wisconsin maintains a Sex Offenders Registry to help keep track of known sex offenders once they are released into the community. Here are some important things to know about the registry:
- You are able to search the Web site by name or location.
- You still need to do a more comprehensive search since the registry is only for the State of Wisconsin and will not include convictions from other states.
- Most offenders who may want to work or volunteer for your organization have not been caught yet, and will not be listed. Making a search is not a replacement for having good policies in place.
- The registry is not a hot line to report sexual abuse.
