Sex offender registration guide updated


The Ohio Attorney General’s Office has updated its Guide to Ohio’s Sex Offender Registration and Notification Laws manual.

The 39-page guide is produced for sheriffs’ offices and staff members of the Ohio Attorney General’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) to answer questions about sex offender registration laws.

The manual includes a history of the laws, information on offender class­ifications, and details on registration duties. It also covers notification requirements and the responsibilities of BCI, the courts, county sheriffs, and other agencies.

The manual includes several pages of frequently asked questions covering topics such as who is required to register, juvenile registrants, registrants from out of state, and rules about registrants’ proximity to children.

The new manual is available on the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway (OHLEG) or by calling 855-BCI-OHIO (855-224-6446).
