The California Department
of Justice maintains a website database, which lists designated
registered sex offenders in California.
As a result of a new law, this site provides the public with access to information on more than 63,000 persons required to register in California as sex offenders. Specific home addresses are displayed on more than 33,500 offenders in the California communities. As to these persons, the site displays the last registered address reported by the offender. An additional 30,500 offenders are included on the site with listing by ZIP Code, city, and county. Information on approximately 22,000 other offenders is not included on this site, but is known to law enforcement personnel.

ZIP Code and city/county listings, obtain detailed personal profile
information on each registrant, and use our map application to search
your neighborhood or anywhere throughout the state to determine the
specific location of any of those registrants on whom the law allows us
to display a home address.
California's Marsy's Law confers certain rights to victims of violent
crime, which ensures that they must by law be treated with respect and
dignity by the criminal justice system. Courts must consider the safety
of victims and families when setting bail and release conditions. And
family members have legal standing in bail hearings, pleas, sentencing,
and parole hearings. Learn more specifics about Marsy's Law.
