How To Search the Alabama Sex Offender List by Area

If you want to see all registered sex offenders within a specific radius of your home, workplace, school, or some other address, you can rely on the area search. Note that searches based on geographical location don’t show offenders whose addresses cannot be electronically mapped.

To discover the registered sex offenders in Alabama by area, you have to:

  1. Access the Alabama Sex Offender Registry
  2. Accept the disclosure agreement
  3. Enter the address, city, state, and ZIP code in the dedicated fields
  4. Select the offender address type—home, work/volunteer, or some other address
  5. Click on Search

Searching for Alabama Sex Offenders by Name, City, Compliant Status, Internet Names, and Email

Although the map search shows the most accurate results, you can also search for predators by other parameters. If you know the offender’s first and last name, use the name search. You can also enter known aliases or partial names.

Alternatively, you can enter the city where you reside and see a full list of predators working, attending school, or living in your vicinity. Searching by city may not produce a reliable list of all offenders near you because the results are too broad.

To locate non-compliant offenders, select the Non-compliant tab from the Registry and press Click Here. You can’t filter the results, but you will see a full list of offenders who don’t report to the police regularly.

If you know the offender’s internet name or email address, you can make good use of the internet name/email search. Keep in mind that the predator may change this info and not notify the authorities.

The following crimes require registration:

  • Rape
  • Sodomy
