Sex Offender Registration Tips Program

Most parents and community members believe that they are doing everything they can to protect children from sexual predators but the disturbing reality is that registered sex offenders are obtaining employment and volunteer positions across the country where they can have unfettered access to children.

You may be aware of this type of situation right now and we can provide support and assistance. The Parents for Megan’s Law Sex Offender Registration Tips (SORT) Program provides you an opportunity to report sex offenders failing to comply with registration laws, employment or residency restriction laws, possible violations of probation or parole or offenders in positions of trust with children.

Working with information received from the public and local, state and federal law enforcement, the SORT Program is responsible for removing numerous registered sex offenders from positions of trust where they had access to children. SORT Program Analysts have also received numerous tips which have lead to registered sex offenders being brought into compliance on their registration, residency restrictions and conditions of probation or parole.

Working collaboratively with social networking sites, the SORT Program is also responsible for the immediate removal of numerous registered sex offenders from Facebook and MySpace.

Please utilize the SORT Program to help protect our most vulnerable. If you feel that you or a child are in immediate danger or have been the victim of a crime, please contact your local law enforcement agency immediately.
