Web site listing registered sex offenders gets upgraded

March 25, 2004

The official Web site listing Maryland's registered sex offenders has been updated and expanded, the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services said this week.

The department's Information Technology and Communications Division made changes that allow users to more easily search through more than 3,600 offenders by first name, last name, category of offense or other factors.

Also, Web site data now is updated daily instead of weekly, the department said.

The Sex Offender Registry - which is at www.dpscs.state.md.us - lists offenders' last reported addresses, category of offenses and convictions. Photos are posted, too.

The department started the Web site in April 2002.
