Effective January 1, , Zachary's Law required sheriff's departments to jointly establish the Indiana Sex and Violent Offender Registry to provide detailed information about individuals who register as sex or violent offenders in Indiana. The purpose of the registry is to inform the general public about the identity, location, and appearance of sex and violent offenders who live, work, or study in Indiana. In order to maintain awareness of sex offenders living in your neighborhood, we have added a Sex Offender Registry to our website. The registry will allow you to enter any local address. It will then provide a list of all registered Morgan County sex offenders living within a 2 mile radius of the address.

How much would you like to donate? The registry will allow you to choose a county in Indiana and enter any local address in that county. It will then provide a list of all registered county sex offenders living within a one-mile radius within the boundaries of the county selected. If you are looking for information about a particular sex offender registered in that county, the registry can help there as well. We encourage you to take advantage of the free email notification. Individuals listed on this registry have been convicted of a sexual offense that requires them to meet a number of mandates including annual registration with law enforcement.
The law is in honor of a year-old Indianan boy, Zachary Snider. Zachery died in , killed by a convicted sex offender living next to his family. The law ensures that the people of Indiana are aware of offenders living in their community. Sex offenders in the state either register for 10 years or a lifetime. Sexual Violent predators register for life.
