HARRISBURG, Pa., May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the goal of enhancing safety by making accurate, complete information about sexual offenders available to the public, the Pennsylvania State Police Megan's Law Section has conducted thousands of compliance checks in 31 counties throughout Pennsylvania since February 2016.

Checks were completed at 4,758 residential addresses, at which 4,249 offenders were found to be compliant. The compliance checks resulted in 51 arrests for a Megan's Law violation, while numerous investigations are still ongoing.

Future compliance sweeps will occur, unannounced, throughout the commonwealth, according to Megan's Law Section Commander Lieutenant Todd Harman. 

"Megan's Law exists to protect the public, especially children, from victimization by repeat sexual offenders," said Lieutenant Harman. "Offenders are responsible for providing up-to-date information about where they live and work and face additional felony charges for violating the regulation."

Several law enforcement entities assist the Pennsylvania State Police with compliance checks, including municipal and county police departments, county probation officers, and the United States Marshals Service. 

To report a sexual offender who is out of compliance with his or her registration requirements, visit the Pennsylvania State Police Megan's Law website and click the "Submit a Tip" button on the offender's page. Tips may also be submitted via telephone by calling 1-866-771-3170 or 1-855-791-1990. All tips can be submitted anonymously.
