Sex Offender Compliance

On June 1, 1997, Wisconsin's Sex Offender Registration and Community Notification Law became effective. The law was created to monitor and track people convicted of sex crimes and to provide access to this information for law enforcement, victims and the public. It also gives local law enforcement agencies the authority to notify communities about certain sex offenders being released from prison. The law helps hold sex offenders accountable for their whereabouts and activities, in part by making their presence known to communities. It is believed that enhanced accountability and visibility will help decrease acts of sexual violence and increase public safety through prevention efforts and public awareness.

The effectiveness of Wisconsin's notification law does not rely exclusively on notifications by law enforcement about particular offenders. The key to the success of Wisconsin's innovative approach is that it created and fosters opportunities for law enforcement to partner with and empower individuals, families and groups within the community around issues of community safety.

The Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry displays the current reported home address of adult sex offenders who are required to register and who are living in the community. Some of these registrants may also be under community supervision (probation, parole or extended supervision) by a DOC agent and must follow additional rules of supervision. Others may have discharged from DOC supervision but are still required by law to register their address and other pertinent information on the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry. The Registry also provides valuable information about the ways in which individuals and communities can protect themselves and those they love from acts of sexual violence.
