Sex Offender Information
Where Sex Offenders Live
Law enforcement has no legal authority to direct where any offender may or may not live. Unless court-ordered restrictions exist, these offenders are constitutionally free to live wherever they choose. Note: There are transient sex offenders who may be in the community and unknown to law enforcement. The Police Department verifies the registered address of offenders living in the city on an annual, semi-annual, or quarterly basis depending on the offender's level.
Level I Sex Offenders
Washington State law strictly limits public disclosure of all Level I registered sex offenders information. Information will be shared with other law enforcement agencies. Upon request, relevant, necessary, and accurate information may be disclosed to any victim or witness to the offense and to any individual community member who lives near the residence where the offender resides, expects to reside, or is regularly found. Level I offenders may not be the subject of general public notification.
