If you’re looking for registered sex offenders in Washington State you can now do so online and for free. There are actually several websites dedicated to providing free access to the WA sex offender registry, and aside from detailed and updated lists, you also get access to lots more information.
The National Sex Offender Website
If you want to search the sex offender registry by zip code in Washington State, one good website to do it is at the National Sex Offender site.
Go to http://www.nsopw.gov/en-US.
At the right side you will see a ‘quick search” option. Enter the first or last name, or click ‘search by location”.
If you want a more comprehensive search option, click “search”.
If you are looking for something like a “map sex offenders in my neighborhood” function, use the “search by address radius” option. Make sure that you provide the right information in all the required fields.
You can also use the Advanced Search option where you can input the zip code, state territory and more. Because this is a national database resource, it covers more than just Washington.
The DC Metropolitan Police Department Website
Another good option would be the official website of the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department.
Go to http://mpdc.dc.gov/service/sex-offender-registry. Read the information on the page before proceeding as it will serve as your guide.
If you are ready to lookup a sex offender by address in WA click the link for the “Search Sex Offender Registry”.
After the page loads, choose one of the search methods available, offender name, other geographical areas, district or MPD PSA or address. If you don’t want the full Washington sexual predator list and looking for something specific, type an address, intersection or street block.
The metropolitan Police Department also has links to their other services including police alerts, filing a police report and personal safety tips.
You can also go the Homefacts website, which provides information abbot sex offenders not just in Washington but other states.
First, you can point your cursor to the map and learn the ratio between the residents and sex offenders in the area.
Next, decide whether you will search by entering the offender’s name or by city or state.
You can also click the “Washington DC registered offenders” link. Here you will see a list of all the registered sex offenders, images, personal information and view their criminal record. Aside from providing a detailed Washington child molester list, there’s also a map which you can use to determine where the sex offenders are.
