Notifications & Improved Search Among Sex Offender Registry Upgrades

kansas-bureau-of-investigationTOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Changes made to the state's criminal offender registry will allow Kansans to receive email notifications if an offender registers a home, work or school address near them. Attorney General Derek Schmidt and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation also said Tuesday that the new system will have expanded search capabilities and maps showing offenders' registered locations. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports people will be able to search by the offender's name, location, reporting compliance and type of offense. Searchers also can see if a phone number, online identity or email address is associated with a registered offender. The changes also will allow law enforcement officials to improve information-sharing across jurisdictions within Kansas and with other states. The improvements are funded through federal grants.
