Pennsylvania's legislature has determined that public safety is enhanced by making information about registered sex offenders available to the public through the internet. Knowing whether a person is a registered sex offender could be a significant factor in protecting yourself and your family members, or those responsible for care of a group or community organization, from recidivist acts by registered sex offenders.
The technology afforded by the internet makes information on registered sex offenders readily accessible to the public, enabling them to undertake appropriate precautions to prevent or avoid placing potential victims at risk. Public access to information about registered sex offenders is intended solely as a means of public protection.
