Much of the information derives from official records but some is gathered from the offenders themselves who are required to register with local law enforcement in each county where they live, work, attend school, or own property. It is your responsibility to make sure the records you access through this site pertain to the person about whom you are seeking information by working with law enforcement or other criminal justice authorities as appropriate. Based on information submitted, a person whose name appears in this registry has been convicted of a sex offense or a violent offense or has been adjudicated a delinquent child for an act that would be a sex offense or violent offense if committed by an adult.

Indiana Sheriff's Association
Effective January 1, , Zachary's Law required sheriff's departments to jointly establish the Indiana Sex and Violent Offender Registry to provide detailed information about individuals who register as sex or violent offenders in Indiana. The purpose of the registry is to inform the general public about the identity, location, and appearance of sex and violent offenders who live, work, or study in Indiana. In order to maintain awareness of sex offenders living in your neighborhood, we have added a Sex Offender Registry to our website. The registry will allow you to enter any local address. It will then provide a list of all registered Morgan County sex offenders living within a 2 mile radius of the address. Individuals listed on this registry have been convicted of a sexual offense that requires them to meet a number of mandates including annual registration with law enforcement. This registry is designed to increase community safety and awareness.
Indiana Sex Offenders
There are nearly 10, sex offenders in the state of Indiana and more than 2, registered sex and violent offenders living in Marion County. With Halloween right around the corner, police are reminding those on probation and parole to report in for a mandatory meeting for the duration of trick-or-treating hours. In other counties, like Marion, sex offenders are required to hang a sign on their front door, turn off the lights and not pass out any candy. We have them stay in their homes, shut off their lights in front of their house and have a sign up that they aren't go to participate in Halloween this year," said Drew Adams, District Supervisor, Dept. Teams of parole officers from the state will be out in force on Halloween, checking on sex offenders to make sure they're complying.
The violent offender law requiring registration and a registry of violent offenders is unconstitutionally retroactive under the Indiana Constitution as applied to violent offenders who committed their offenses in Indiana before the date the law went into effect, July 1, , except insofar as the persons are required to register as a current condition of probation or parole. If you have been classified as violent offender as a result of committing the offense in Indiana prior to July 1, , and you are not currently required to register as a condition of probation or parole, the Indiana Department of Correction has been ordered to remove your name and all information concerning you from the sex and violent offender registry, unless you are convicted of other offenses that allow you to be currently classified as a sex or violent offender. This will be done automatically unless the Department of Correction cannot determine when the person committed the offense or whether he or she is required to register as a condition of probation or parole. If this occurs, the individual will receive a notice at his or her last known address with instructions as to how to contact the Indiana Department of Correction. And, if you are in the above category, the Sheriff of your county in Indianapolis, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department has been ordered to cease imposing any registration requirements on persons classified as violent offenders as a result of committing the offense prior to July 1, , unless the person has committed other offenses that allow the person to be currently classified as a sex or violent offender.
