Legal Limits on Disclosures. Only information on registered sex offenders allowed to be disclosed under California law appears on this website. Under state law, some registered sex offenders are not subject to public disclosure, so they are not included on this site.

Errors and Omissions. Information pertaining to schools, parks and street map data is obtained with permission of and through a license agreement with Google Inc. Other information on this website is compiled from reports by local law enforcement. Much of that information is gathered from persons who are required to register as sex offenders and to provide, at least once a year, their addresses and other information to local law enforcement. Because information can change quickly, and there may be gaps in data received, the California Department of Justice makes no representation, either express or implied, that the information on this site is complete or accurate. Neither the Department of Justice nor the State of California shall be held responsible for any errors or omissions on this website or produced by secondary dissemination of this information.

Mistaken Identities. Extreme care must be taken in the use of information because mistaken identification may occur when relying solely upon name, age and address to identify individuals.

Notice of Corrections. If you believe that any information on this site is in error, please contact a police or sheriff's department, or contact the Department of Justice by e-mail at

Legal and Illegal Uses. The information on this website is made available solely to protect the public. Anyone who uses this information to commit a crime or to harass an offender or his or her family is subject to criminal prosecution and civil liability.
