California Sex Offender Registry


The mission of the California Sex Offender Registry is to provide accurate and timely information to the law enforcement community and the general public concerning sex offender registration in California.


In 1947, California became the first state in the nation to enact a sex offender registration law that required offenders convicted of specified offenses to register with their local law enforcement agency. This practice is still in place and the California Sex and Arson Registry (CSAR) serves as the statewide repository for information on registered sex offenders. Today, the California Sex Offender Registry continues to provide a wide range of services that support and assist the law enforcement community with the monitoring and registration of over 120,000 California sex offenders. These services include maintaining and providing information to the general public via the California Megan’s Law Internet Web site.


We pride ourselves on working closely with our clients and are committed to providing a high-quality of service. Therefore, if you have any feedback to share with our management, be it a compliment, complaint, question or concern, please contact the California Sex Offender Registry at
