Wyoming Sex Offender Registry Can Tire You—Let DoNotPay Be on Patrol
Wyoming ranks eighth on the list of states with the highest sex offender density in the U.S. As per May 2021 records from the Wyoming Sex Offender Registry, the state has a whopping 421 sex offenders for every 100,000 residents!
Navigating through the Registry to check fresh additions to the ever-expanding list of sex offenders is one tough job. It’s also exhausting to uphold your family’s safety day in and day out when sloppy government sex offender registries start acting up.
DoNotPay’s Sex Offender Search feature lets you access the list of sex offenders near any address in a time-efficient manner. Our rapid alerts can save you a lot of trouble—sign up today for effortless vigilance!
The Wyoming Sex Offender Registry website lets you browse through its database via two standard search modes. Go over this table to understand the search options available:
|Mode of Search||Details|
|Basic input-based search||This lets you view results for the following search inputs:
|Radius map search||Use this to check out the registered addresses of mappable sex offenders within a radius. Keep in mind that this is not a real-time location pointer|
Megan’s Law and Wyoming statutes dictate the terms of releasing the Registry information to the public. During registration, law enforcement adds the following to a sex offender’s records:
- Fingerprint and palmprint
- DNA sample
- Personal details, like address, employment, and vehicles operated
- Government IDs
- Conviction info
- Contact numbers and email addresses
- Physical description pointers like race, weight, height, sex, and eye and hair color
Despite collecting abundant data, the authorities may choose to publish limited information on any offender that may or may not be of use to you.
Wyoming’s Division of Criminal Investigation—which maintains the Registry—has acknowledged that the public sex offender database may not be absolute at any given point in time.
If you cannot locate a particular record on the Registry, the reason could be:
- Long delays in adding new registrants or updating the records of existing ones
- Missing data on non-compliant or unregistered sex offenders who fly under the radar
- Unacceptable or incoherent search inputs
- Erased data due to a lawfully terminated registration
- Underlying technical errors or malfunctioning issues with the website
Many county sheriffs in Wyoming issue community notifications whenever a high-risk or Tier 3 sex offender moves into a new neighborhood. The type of notification is left at the discretion of law enforcement and can be anything from flyers to media announcements.
Depending on the county or jurisdiction, you can register on the local sheriff’s website to receive an email alert whenever a particular offender moves into your neighborhood. This is what you need to do:
- Visit the Registry website and go to the search window
- Punch in the correct input to find the offender you want to track
- Locate the Register to Track this Offender option and click on it
- Enter your address and a valid email ID to get notified whenever the offender enters your neighborhood
- Repeat this process and subscribe individually for each offender you want to track
Subscribing to multiple offender alerts one by one is a time-consuming process that can leave you drained through and through. After putting in so much work, the most upsetting part is that these alerts tend to get buried in your spam folder all the time.
We have compiled the most commonly asked questions about what an offender is or is not allowed to do in Wyoming:
|What is the registration period?||Sex offenders in Wyoming must register for life|
|Are juveniles asked to register?||Yes, but Wyoming statute restricts public access to the list of juvenile sex offenders. You must ask your local sheriff if you need such info|
|How often must offenders verify their details?||No fixed law—the jurisdiction’s sheriff decides the verification frequency|

|How does inter-state travel affect registration?||Out-of-state offenders moving into Wyoming must register only if their crime requires registration as per Wyoming laws.
