What about sex offender records?

We strongly encourage families to order the national sex offender search. This option has been considerably improved in recent years as a result of federal legislation. The economical National Sexual Offender Registry (NSOR) search is recommended as part of any childcare or eldercare background screening to reduce the risk of hiring someone with a prior history of sex offenses. The NSOR accesses public sex offender records information from each state, using real-time access to each state registry. The NSOR search provides a comprehensive, nationwide alternative to a single state sex offender record search.

The national sex offender registry search relies on records aggregated by the U.S. Department of Justice. It provides a comprehensive search that includes offenders in all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. The NSOR accesses real-time records from each jurisdiction’s public registries. Offenses requiring registration are governed by state law. Information reported includes available records for the maximum period allowed under applicable law.

Information reported varies by state, but typically includes:

  • The full name of the offender
  • A classification of the offense
  • The last know address of the offender.

All information found during the course of the national sex offender search is reported.
