Furthermore the database is compiled based, in part, upon information provided by the convicted offender and such information is not independently verified by MDPS. All registered sex offenders must report to the county Sheriff immediately upon entering the county to attend school. From January , all convicted sex offenders have been, and continue to be, subject to the registration requirements of the law. Any person who provides information to a law enforcement agency regarding a sex offender which the person knows to be false is subject to criminal prosecution. Individuals included within the registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction record and state law. MDPS is not responsible for any banners or other material that such providers may add to what you see on your computer screen while trying to view our site via a link provided by an outside enterprise. MDPS compiles and provides this information but does not independently confirm the accuracy of all information. MDPS has not assessed any specific risk of re-offense with regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion within this registry, and has made no determination that any individual included in the registry is currently dangerous. Any person convicted of certain sex offense violations of the Ohio Revised Code or similar laws of another state may be determined by the court to be required to register as a sex offender. Comparisons based on appearance may also be misleading, and cannot establish a positive identification without some possibility of error. Also, you may use the map application to search your neighborhood or anywhere throughout the state to determine the specific locations of registrants.
