(TOPEKA, Kan.)—Attorney General Derek Schmidt and the KBI say Kansas communities will be safer thanks to new improvements to the state's criminal offender registry.
The new system allows citizens to sign up for notification emails advising when an offender registers a home, work or school address near an address of interest.
Citizens can search for offender information by the offender's name, location, reporting compliance, and offender type (sex, violent or drug).
Searches can also be done by phone number, online identity or email address to determine if the information is associated with a registered offender.
The offender registry can be accessed at www.kbi.ks.gov/registeredoffender.
