However, this is only a fraction of the individuals required to register and notify within the state.
The Office of State Police, Bureau of Criminal Identification and Information (the Bureau) is charged with maintaining a central registry of sex offenders and child predators. Information on the purpose and history of the program, registration and notification requirements, and a search for a person registered as a sex offender or child predator can be found on the State Police website.
