Searching the Kentucky Sex Offenders List

Look Up Kentucky’s Registered Sex Offenders by Their Data

This section of the Kentucky Sex Offender Registry enables you to conduct your search based on the offender’s personal data. You’ll see the following fields:

  • Number or name
  • Address
  • City
  • County
  • ZIP code

You can fill out one or several fields, depending on the info you have.

Take a Look at the Kentucky Sex Offender Map

You can also look up sex offenders by location on a map. The parameters that can help you narrow down your search are:

  • Street address
  • City
  • ZIP code
  • Radius (one, five, and ten miles)
  • County

While this option may seem practical, there are some downsides:

  • It might not encompass the search range you need—the map only works up to the county level
  • It is tricky and frustrating to navigate the sex offenders map, especially over your smartphone. It also takes ages to load

Try Kentucky Sex Offender Tracking

This search section has only one field—the county code. It should give you info about the offenders in the desired area, but you could also receive an error notification—the system is not reliable enough.

KY State Police Sex Offender Registry Phone Alerts

The previous three search methods have one flaw in common—you need to do your research manually.

The only alert system that Kentucky State Police offers is via phone. You would need to call the toll-free number (1-866-564-5652) and sign up for notifications of up to three ZIP codes. You don’t need to use your computer to manage these alerts, so this method of receiving info can be handy. It can also easily become a daily disturbance for the whole family, though.

Registration and Verification Requirements for Sex Offenders in Kentucky

All sex offenders (Level I, II, and III) need to register with the local authority to be listed on the Kentucky Sex Offender Registry. For the initial registration, they must provide correct personal data, including their residence, vehicle information, and online identities.

Any change in this data must also be reported within the following deadlines:

Reporting DeadlineChanges

  • New vehicle registration
  • A plan to move to another county
  • An out-of-state offender planning a trip to Kentucky and a stay of 14 days in a row or 30 days in a year altogether
14 days
  • The initial registration after the imprisonment
  • Out-of-state offenders moving into Kentucky
  • Change of address
21 daysInternational travel—they need to report all travel information and documentation

Sex offender registration laws also require sex offenders to confirm their addresses regularly after the initial registration. This applies even if their residence hasn’t changed. The verification periods depend on the level of the offense.

  • Level I and II—once a year
  • Level III—once every 90 days

  • Refrain from engaging in online communication with any person under the age of 18
  • Keep the authorities in the loop about any changes to their identity
  • Report all places where they live and spend most of their time
