Alaska Sex Offenders public database is own and operated by the State Of Alaska. Its sex offender registry can be limited because the Alaska Supreme Court ruled that quarterly registration applies ONLY to persons who committed their crime(s) after January 1, 1999. And for offenses that occurred before January 1, 1999, there are more limitations:
- A person with a single conviction for a sex offense is required to register annually for 15 years after the date of unconditional discharge.
- A person convicted of two or more convictions is required to register annually for life.
- For 15 year registrants, proof of unconditional discharge must be submitted to the department for determination of a final registration date. It is the responsibility of the registrant to complete the unconditional discharge paperwork.
- Offenders must continue registering until the department has provided notification of a final registration date and are subject to criminal charges for Failure to Register if they fail to do so.
- A person with an offense after January 1, 1999, is subject to the verification schedule currently specified in AS 12.63.
These laws aimed to give people a second chance might also endanger the community by withholding important information on sex offenders. But the Alaska Legislations and Courts have taken the view of rehabilitation. With the belief in a second chance, they have reshaped Alaskas laws. Only time will tell how these laws will affect Alaska residents long term.
Alaska Sex offenders Free Interactive Map
Alaska uses a geographical mapping system to search and track the sex offenders. These maps, with their interface, have great advantages over a normal database query search. Because they correlate with the data with geography users can easily visualize the proximity to Alaska sex offenders.
The Alaska registry, required by law, provides a single public website. The site sorts and provides registrant information by name, address, zip code, city name, registration status, or a total list. And the best part is it’s free to all. Anyone can conduct a free Alaska Sex Offenders search on the states official website.
As an additional option, people may also search the registry, with a free sex offender search by using the State sponsored interactive sex offenders map. The locations of offender addresses on this web mapping site are approximate based on automated mapping of the address in the registry. A number of addresses are only mapped to a general location for a community. Addresses in the registry are being updated to provide better mapping results.
Numerous non-governmental, private websites take information from Alaska’s registry and link it to maps that can be searched in various ways. These commercial mapping websites can be located through popular Internet search engines by using search terms such as “Alaska sex offender/child kidnapper registry mapping services.” Some of the private map services may charge a fee to use their service.
The official Alaska sex offender/child kidnapper registry is updated on normal business workdays, but private websites may not update their linking information as frequently. There may be a significant difference between private sites and the sex offender registry information. Members of the public who use private mapping websites are encouraged to confirm offender information on this official site.
