How Can I Look Into the List of Summit County Sex Offenders?

Like every county in Ohio, Summit County publishes its list of registered sex offenders through Electronic Sex Offender Registration and Notification—also known as eSORN. It serves as a complied sex offender registry that lets you access its database through the following direct or reverse search parameters:

  1. Address
  2. Name and alias
  3. City
  4. Compliance status
  5. Internet identifiers or email
  6. Phone number

The Summit County Sheriff's Office makes the following disclaimer about using this database:

  • There is no guarantee about the complete accuracy of this database at any given point in time
  • The Registry will not publish the names of unregistered sex offenders, certain juvenile offenders, or the name of any other offender as per Ohio’s registration laws or court orders
  • You cannot misuse the database to commit a criminal act against any registered offender

Summit County Ohio Sex Offenders—Community Notifications

You can subscribe to the Registry website to get email notifications from law enforcement whenever any sexual predator moves within 1,250 feet of your address. The authorities claim to notify you via email, but the efficacy of these notifications remains highly doubtful.

Many residents never even receive a timely email alert, or the alert gets buried in their junk folder without any trace.

Missing Sex Offenders—Don’t Let Public Registry Search Bring You Down

Megan’s Law facilitated the creation of online sex offender registries open to the public, but most of these registries operate in a substandard manner. Relying on Summit County’s Sex Offender Registry is not a viable option due to several reasons:

  • The website’s slow, complicated, and time-sapping search mechanism can leave you exhausted

  • You will need to run a lengthy search every few days for consistent safety
