The Chicago Police Department developed this web application to provide residents
of the City of Chicago with a tool to assist them accessing registered sex offender information.
It is based upon the CLEAR (Citizen Law Enforcement Analysis and Reporting)
system developed by the Department for use by its police officers.
This web application enables you to search the Chicago Police Department's database
of registered sex offenders. You will be able to see maps, graphs, and tables
of offenders. The database contains the names of registered sex offenders who reside in the City of Chicago and
is updated once per day.
Although every effort is made to keep this list accurate and current, the city
cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Offenders may have moved and failed to notify
the Chicago Police Department as required by law. If any information presented in this web site is known
to be outdated and/or if you have information that a sex offender is not living at his/her registered address, call: MISSING PERSONS / SEX OFFENDER HOTLINE: (312)747-5789 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sex Offender Registration & Community Notification
Pursuant to the Sex Offender and Child Murderer Community Notification Law, 730 ILCS 152/101,et seq., the Chicago Police Department maintains a list of sex offenders residing in the City of Chicago who are required to register under the Sex Offender Registration Act, 730 ILCS 150/2, et seq. A list of registered sex offenders is being provided on this web site as a public service.
This registry is based upon the legislature's decision to facilitate access to publicly available information about persons convicted of specific sexual offenses. The Chicago Police Department has not considered or assessed the specific risk of re-offense with regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion within this registry, and has made no determination that any individual included within the registry is currently dangerous. Individuals included within this registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction record and Illinois law. The main purpose of providing this data on the Internet is to make the information more easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individual.
Anyone who uses information contained in the Sex Offender Database to commit a criminal act against another person is subject to criminal prosecution.
