Illinois Compiled Statutes (730 ILCS 152/115 (a) and (b)) mandate that the Illinois State
Police ("ISP") establish and maintain a statewide Sex Offender Database, accessible on the
Internet, identifying persons who have been convicted of certain sex offenses and/or crimes
against children and must register as a Sex Offender.
Persons required to register as Sex Offenders are persons who have been charged of an
offense listed in Illinois Compiled Statutes 730 ILCS 150/2(B) when such charge results in
one of the following:
(a) A conviction for the commission of the offense or attempt to commit the offense,
(b) A finding of not guilty by reason of insanity of committing the offense or
attempting to commit the offense, or
(c) A finding not resulting in an acquittal
at a hearing for the alleged commission or attempted commission of the offense.
The Sex Offender Registry was created in response to the Illinois Legislature's
determination to facilitate access to publicly available information about persons convicted
of sex offenses. ISP has not considered or assessed the specific risk of re-offense with
regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion on this Registry and has made no
determination that any individual included in the Registry is currently dangerous.
Individuals included on the Registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction
record and Illinois state law. The primary purpose of providing this information is to make
the information easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individuals.
Anyone who uses this information to commit a criminal act against another person is
subject to criminal prosecution.
ISP updates this information regularly in an effort to assure that the information on the Registry is complete and accurate; however, ISP makes no representation, express or implied, that the information contained on the Registry is accurate.
The information contained on the Registry can change quickly so the current residence,
status or other information regarding an offender may not be accurate. Though much of the
information is of record, some information is gathered from the offenders themselves who may
fail to provide any or accurate information. Additional information and verification can be
obtained from the local law enforcement agency where the sex offender resides.
IF YOU BELIEVE THAT ANY OF THE INFORMATION FOUND IN THESE RECORDS IS INACCURATE, PLEASE
CONTACT THE ILLINOIS STATE POLICE SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION TEAM AT (217) 785-0653 BETWEEN
THE HOURS OF 8:30AM AND
5:00PM, MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Rewards may be available through your local Crimestoppers Organization. If you have information on the whereabouts of a missing sex offender in Illinois, you have the option of contacting your local Crimestoppers Organization to inquire if a reward is available for providing this information to Illinois law enforcement. The Illinois State Police makes no guarantee that reward money is available for this information.
