Purpose

Supplemental Information

CSOSA assumed official responsibility for the registration of sex offenders on October 1, 2000. CSOSA registers adult sex offenders who have been convicted, who have been found not guilty by reason of insanity, or who are adjudicated sexual psychopaths. Section 2 of the Sex Offender Registration Act of 1999 includes a list of offenses requiring registration. Each registrant is classified as a Class A, Class B or Class C offender, based upon the offense of conviction. Class A offenses are considered the most serious offenses; this category has a lifetime registration requirement. The Washington Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) maintains a list of Class A and Class B registered sex offenders on their website as a service to the community. The public may review the entire sex offender registry by visiting one of the Police Districts or the MPD Sex Offender Registry Unit. CSOSA's Sex Offender Supervision Unit identifies sex offenders under CSOSA supervision who are required to register. CSOSA also informs sex offenders of their duty to register and the penalties for noncompliance. Each sex offender is required to read and sign a form stating that his or her duties under the Act have been explained. CSOSA maintains a state-of-the-art database containing the sex offender registry information. All information regarding active registrants is transmitted electronically to MPD. CSOSA collects the following information on sex offenders: - Full name and aliases - Date of birth - Sex and race - Height, weight, eye and hair color - Any identifying marks or characteristics - Home, employment and school addresses - Photograph and fingerprints - Offenses requiring registration, date of conviction, jurisdiction of conviction and any other registration offense All sex offenders are required to complete periodic registration updates with CSOSA. They must notify CSOSA within 72 hours of any changes to their registry profile to ensure that the information is accurate and complete.
