Sex Offender Registration and Notifications

Did You Know?

Registered sex offenders in Ohio are required by law to register their home address, work address, and vehicle information with their local sheriff’s office to be publicly accessible through the eSORN database. Each of Ohio’s 88 county sheriff offices input the information into the system. Supplemental information, such as phone numbers, email addresses, screen names, and handles are also required, but are not public. The law allows law enforcement agencies in the state to carry out unannounced checks on sex offenders registered in Ohio.

Through grant funds made available by the US Department of Justice / Office of Justice Programs, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office has coordinated a task force that will be conducting quarterly home visits to all registered sex offenders to verify they are living where they reported and obtain updated photos for the registry.

In order to maintain awareness of sex offenders living in your neighborhood, we have added information about the Sex Offender Registry to our website. The registry allows you to enter any local address. It will then provide a list of all registered State of Ohio sex offenders living within a one-mile radius within the boundaries of the county. If you are looking for information about a particular sex offender, registered in Clark County, the registry can help also.

This registry is designed to increase community safety and awareness. This information is meant to educate you about offenders in Clark County. It has not been made available for you to take action against any individual. Any action against an offender which is determined to be a violation of law will subject the violator to arrest and prosecution.

Please report all information and concerns on sex offenders directly to the SORN Deputy at (937) 521-2050.
