We are in the process of validating and attaching photos to sex offender registrations. Some photos may not be available until the loading of photos has been completed.
The Michigan State Police have gone to great lengths to assure the accuracy of the match of the photo to the sex offender. If a problem is discovered, please contact the SOR hotline at 517-322-5098. The Public Sex Offender Registry may be unavailable at times due to the volume of use. Should you be unable to access the registry, please check back later. Thank you.
Welcome to the Michigan State Police (MSP) Public Sex Offender Registry (PSOR). The Sex Offenders Registration Act, MCL 28.721et seq., directs the MSP to develop and maintain a PSOR. Information available on the PSOR includes an offender’s name, address, offense information, and a photograph. The photograph displayed of the offender is obtained from the most recent information provided to law enforcement.
The PSOR is made available through the Internet with the intent to better assist the people of this state in preventing and protecting against the commission of future criminal sexual acts by convicted sex offenders. The legislature has determined that a person who has been convicted of committing certain offenses poses a potential serious menace and danger to the health, safety, morals, and welfare of the people, and particularly the children, of this state. The registration requirements of the Sex Offender Registration Act are intended to provide the people of this state with an appropriate, comprehensive, and effective means to monitor those persons who pose such a potential danger.
The information contained on the PSOR can change quickly. Though much of the information is obtained from public records, some information is gathered from the offenders themselves who may fail to provide accurate information. Consequently, the current residence, status, or other information regarding an offender may not be accurate. The MSP updates this information regularly in an effort to assure that the information on the PSOR is complete and accurate; however, the MSP makes no representation, express or implied, that the information contained on the PSOR is accurate.
Information provided through the PSOR is public information. However, it is your responsibility to make sure the records accessed through the PSOR pertain to the person about whom you are seeking information. Extreme care should be exercised in using any information obtained from this web site. The MSP shall not be responsible for any errors or omissions produced by secondary dissemination of this information.
Information listed on the registry shall not be used to threaten, intimidate or harass another. The MSP has not considered or assessed the specific risk of re-offense with regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion on the PSOR and has made no determination that any individual included in the PSOR is currently dangerous. If you believe that any of the information contained in these records is in error, please contact the local law enforcement agency where the sex offender resides.
