Q. Why can’t I receive details of sex offender crimes in my report?

A. States may limit the amount of details on their sex offender registries for a variety of reasons, so results can vary.

Q. What are the different levels of sex offender crimes?

A. There are typically three levels, based on an offender’s risk of committing another sex crime or harm to the community:

  • Level 1: low risk
  • Level 2: moderate risk
  • Level 3: high risk

Other labels exist in certain states’ sex offender registries. These may include sexual predator, sexually violent offender and predicate sex offender.

What is this?

There are several types of codes:

Requirements Code:
This code is given to a user by an organization or person who has asked the user to complete a series of requirements for a given qualification process. Each qualification process is assigned a unique code.
