Sex Offender Information

 


This page is reviewed quarterly for accuracy in statistical data and other necessary updates.

The Yakima County Sheriff's Office considers the protection of our community from sex offenders of significant importance. The objective of the 1990 Community Protection Act was to provide adequate notice to the community concerning sex offenders who are, or will be residing in the community, and to assist community members in developing constructive plans to prepare themselves and their children for residing near released sex offenders.

The site, VIEW LEVEL II AND LEVEL III OFFENDERS  contains a section titled OFFENDERS WITH NON VALID ADDRESSES.  The offenders in this section DO have valid street addresses.  The program the State uses for mapping on the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs web site contains a computer problem which causes it not to recognize certain valid street addresses.  We continue to work with the State on a regular basis to remedy these problems.  If there are any questions reference the validity of any address, please contact our office.
