Sex Offender Registry Searches

ESR’s search is the most complete source of sex offender registrations available in the United States.  

Sex Offender Registry Searches

Employment Screening Resources (ESR) can help determine if an individual is a registered sex offender. This search is particularly critical to organizations that serve vulnerable populations such as children, the elderly and those being treated in healthcare settings.

ESR performs real-time sex offender searches through the U.S. Department of Justice as a cooperative effort between the federal government and all 50 state jurisdictions that host sex offender registries. We also have the ability to search individual states’ registries.

Each state has a different policy and procedure when it comes to maintaining sex offender databases. States can vary in terms of the start date of the data, the information released and the frequency of updates. As a best practice, ESR searches the U.S. Department of Justice.

ESR verifies all potential matches at the state level for relatedness, accuracy, and completeness before being included in a report. Some states restrict the use of sex offender information in employment decisions. ESR makes our clients aware of those states having restrictions on the use of sex offender information for employment purposes when it affects their screening program.
