Sheriff’s Badge Indiana Sex and Violent Offender Registry

Refer to the Find Your Sheriff Office to speak to Sex Offender Registry Coordinator within a specific county.

The registry will allow you to choose a county in Indiana and enter any local address in that county. It will then provide a list of all registered county sex offenders living within a one-mile radius within the boundaries of the county selected. If you are looking for information about a particular sex offender registered in that county, the registry can help there as well.

We encourage you to take advantage of the free email notification. When a sex offender registers with the county Sheriffs’ Office in Indiana, you will be alerted if the offender’s address is:

  1. In the selected county, and
  2. Within one mile of the address you have entered on your subscription.

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.

This information is meant to educate you about offenders in a county. It has not been made available for you to take action against any individual. Any action against an offender which is determined to be a violation of law will subject the violator to arrest and prosecution. Please report all information on offenders directly to the office within that county.
