Sex Offender Registry

The Idaho Sheriffs’ Association has partnered with Offender Watch to provide this tool for our 44 county sheriffs’ offices and for the public at large. When a local agency or sheriff’s office updates information on a sex offender in OffenderWatch, it is automatically updated across the entire state network. This provides real time information to our sheriffs and the public about the presence and whereabouts of sex offenders who are required by law to report their addresses and any movements.
