Registered Sex Offenders

The North Carolina Sex Offender and Public Protection Registry was established in January 1996 with the General Assembly's enactment of Article 27A of Chapter 14 of the North Carolina General Statutes (NCGS 14-208.5). This law requires persons living in North Carolina, non-resident students, and non-resident workers who are residents or who relocate to North Carolina and who have a reportable conviction to maintain registration with the sheriff of the county where they reside. The law also requires non-resident students and workers to maintain registration with the sheriff in the county where they attend school or work.

Students seeking information about registered sex offenders in the region may contact the local Sheriff’s Department or go to the NC State Bureau of Investigation website.
