OKC Police Department Launches 'OffenderWatch' Website

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma City Police Department on Wednesday launched its new sex and violent offender registration and public notification website called “OffenderWatch.”

Access "OffenderWatch"

The Oklahoma City Police Department will now become part of a nationwide network of over 5,000 law enforcement agencies which enter and share sex offender information to inform the public via the internet.

As part of this new and innovative service, users may enter any address of interest to them, and see a map listing of all offenders within a user defined radius (from ¼ of mile to two miles) of the entered address. Additionally, users can register their address and receive an email alerting them if/when an offender should register an address within their specified radius.

Members of the public may register as many addresses as they like, at no cost to them.

According to police, the overall purpose of the program is to lessen the anxiety of citizens by proactively alerting them if a registered offender move within proximity to them, and to provide the highest level of security and safety to all persons in Oklahoma City.

The program also helps police verify offender addresses, and enforce safety buffers that may be implemented around protected institutions in the city, such as schools, daycares and parks. The website will assist police schedule compliance checks for verifying information provided by offenders.
