It’s Time For Sex Offenders To Verify Registration
State Police are reminding all registered sex offenders that the 15-day address verification period started on Wednesday and runs through mid-month.
During this period, state law requires all registered offenders to report in person to their local law enforcement agency, sheriff’s office or nearest MSP post to verify their address.
All registered sex offenders must also report a change of name, address, employment, campus enrollment, internet identifiers and vehicle within three business days of any change. These changes must be made in person at their local law enforcement agency, sheriff’s office or nearest state police post. Failure to do so is a four-year felony.
The Sex Offenders Registration Act allows police to arrest an offender who is not properly reporting.
Violators may be arrested during a traffic stop or any other contact with law enforcement. Additionally, law enforcement agencies conduct random address checks to verify offender compliance.
