Sex Offender Registry Search

The Sex Offender Registry Search is compiled from violent and sex offender registries in all 50 states and the District of Columbia which contains listings of more than 500,000 registered sex offenders. While data or types of crimes listed in the registry varies by state, the registry consists of such offenses as sexually violent offenses, sexual offenses, misconduct with a minor, production of child pornography, etc.

The Sex Offender Registry Search is valuable because it identifies a group with a disposition for repeating similar crimes. The U.S. Department of Justice identified that the recidivism rate for sex crimes is four times higher than other crimes. In addition, this search provides companies with increased visibility to an applicant’s history. Even though a sex offense may not appear on a person’s record because of time elapsed, they may still be listed on the registry. Please note there are state-specific laws regarding the use of the Sex Offender Registry for employment purposes. Check with your state before using this information to make a hiring decision.

Quality Assurance Check

Our Public Records Department reviews each criminal record before it is reported to the client. All records are subject to our strict quality control process. Results indicating a criminal background are communicated in an easy to read format and are only reported once KRESS has conducted a thorough investigation confirming that the record belongs to the correct applicant and that it is reportable to employers and is FCRA compliant.
