Community Notification

Community notification is one of the major information services provided by Megan’s Law.  Megan’s Law compels states to make private and personal information on registered sex offenders available to the public.  Community notification:

  • Assists law enforcement in investigations;
  • Establishes legal grounds to hold known offenders;
  • Deters sex offenders from committing new offenses;
  • Offers citizens information they can use to protect children from victimization.
