Pursuant to KRS 17.580, the Kentucky State Police provides sex offender registration information to the public through this website. The intent of this site is to promote public safety and awareness by alerting possible victims of potential danger, not to punish or embarrass offenders.
Convicted sex offenders have always lived in our communities; only in recent years have laws been passed which have required these offenders to register with authorities.
Unfortunately, many convicted sex offenders do re-offend. There is an overriding public interest and need to ensure the safety of the public by providing information concerning registered offenders to the public. It is important to note that not all criminal offenses require registration with the Kentucky State Police, only those covered by statute.
