In accordance with O.C.G.A. § 42-1-12, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) is the central repository for Georgia's Violent Sexual Offender Registry. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation makes every effort to ensure that the information contained in the Georgia Sex Offender Registry is accurate. As the information is provided by other agencies and entities and is continuously changing.
3. WHO IS REQUIRED TO REGISTER? O.C.G.A. § 42-1-12 (e) Persons convicted on or after July 1, 1996 of a dangerous sexual offense. Persons previously convicted of a criminal offense against a victim who is a minor and may be released from prison or placed on parole, supervised release, or probation on or after July 1, 1996.

NOTE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC: This website is a service to Sheriffs' Offices to facilitate the publishing of their local sex offender lists on their local websites. Not all Georgia Counties have subscribed to this service. For non-subscribed counties, no offenders will be displayed.
