In compliance with sex offender registration laws, the state of California offers a thorough sex offender registry. Some states compile county-level lists, but California puts all convicted predators together.
To look up San Diego sex offenders, go straight to California’s registry and pick your county from the County dropdown menu.
Other options include search by:
- Offender’s first and last name
- Address (with the first two and the last two fields marked as required)
- Street number
- Street name
- Apt/Suite number
- ZIP Code
- ZIP Code
- Near Me (accessing your location to show you the offenders in the vicinity)
For each search, you’ll be offered the offender map and list view. Although this search method does well as a one-time approach, it is not convenient for sourcing the info regularly. Besides the fact that the system needs some time to come up with your search results, continual browsing can become a burden to your daily schedule.
San Diego sex offender rules and regulations correspond to the state’s registration laws. All convicted sex offenders must register, including transients and juvenile offenders sentenced to imprisonment in California Youth Authority or another youth prison.
If offenders disregard this obligation and remain unregistered, they risk imprisonment of up to three years.
Keep in mind that the public sex offender registry won’t show around 25% of the offenders registered with the authorities. Registrants classified as Tier 1 and convicted for the least severe crimes are unavailable to the general public.
Sand Diego sex offenders are classified into three tiers depending on the recidivism rate. Each tier has a different minimum registration period.
Note that the offenders aren’t automatically removed from the registry. They will remain registered for life unless they file a plea for removal following the passing of their minimum required registration period.
Here are all tiers and mandatory registration periods, including the info on the juvenile offenders obliged to register:
|Tier||Description||Required Registration Time|
|Juveniles||Minors who were sentenced to youth prison punishment||Five to ten years|
|Tier 1||Adults who are not likely to commit another crime||Minimum of ten years|
|TIer 2||Adults with medium re-offense potential||Minimum of 20 years|
|Tier 3||Adults whose re-offense potential is high||For life|
Sex offenders registered in San Diego must follow specific rules and reporting requirements, such as:
- Residential restrictions apply to particular sex offenders forbidding them to live within 2,000 feet of a school
- Restricted contact with children, especially if the victim was younger than 16. The offender cannot work with or accompany children
- Working restrictions that prohibit the offenders from having a medical, dentistry, or legal career
Reporting requirements include the obligation to notify the authorities of any personal data change. Relocation also needs to be reported and involves:
- Moving house
- Relocating to another state or country
- Traveling to or from other states for an extended visit
The City of San Diego has around 1,222 registered sex offenders, while the rest of the county has 2,200.
The child-friendly communities aren’t off-limits to released offenders who passed their probation. It’s up to you as an individual and parent to stay informed and educate your child.
