Sex Offender Information & Resources

The Oklahoma Sex Offenders Registration Act, Title 57, Section 581-590 of the Oklahoma State Statutes, amended effective November 1, 1997, requires the offender do the following:

Upon receipt of the verification letter in the mail, the offender must return the verification form in person to their local law enforcement agency within ten (10) calendar days.

The local law enforcement agency must require the offender to produce proof of their identity and current address and then forward a signed copy of the verification letter to the ODOC, in a manner approved by the ODOC, within three (3) calendar days.

However, in the absence of receipt of the mailed verification form, the offender must continue to comply with the reporting requirements and must report in person to the local law enforcement agency for current address verification and may complete this alternate form. The law enforcement agency may use this alternate form to confirm the offender's compliance.

If the offender fails to properly verify their address or report as required, the local law enforcement agency and district attorney's office will be notified of the failure within forty-five (45) calendar days.

Note: If the offender is currently delinquent on the registry, this form will serve as an address update and the offender may receive a verification letter mailed to the updated address. If the offender is not delinquent, this alternate letter will serve as a substitute.

Failure to comply with requirements of the Sex Offenders Registration Act may be punishable as a felony.
