Conducting a Registered Sex Offender Search in Kansas
In Kansas, searching for a registered sex offender is relatively easy and can be done entirely online. The Kansas Bureau of Investigations maintains an online database consisting of every registered sex offender who committed his or her offense(s) on or after April 19, 1994. The database is updated weekly and there is no fee required to search. It is possible to search by name, city, county, and zip code.
Kansas Statute define a sex offender as any person who has committed a sexually violent crime such as rape, indecent liberties with a child, aggravated indecent liberties with a child, criminal sodomy, aggravated criminal sodomy, indecent solicitation of a child, aggravated indecent solicitation of a child, sexual exploitation of a child, sexual battery, aggravated sexual battery, and aggravated incest. Kansas Statute also places sexually violent predators in a separate category, and defines them as individuals who have a “mental abnormality or personality disorder and who are likely to engage in repeat acts of sexual violence”.
The KBI Registered Sex Offender database lists all offenders whose offense meets the definition of “sex offender” or “sexually violent predator,” as well as those convicted of sexual conduct with a minor. The database does not distinguish between the sex offenders, sexually violent predators, and those who were convicted of sexual conduct with a minor. Rather, they are all considered to be “sex offenders” and their individual convictions are listed in the offense section of their record.
To search for registered sex offenders in the Kansas area, follow these simple steps. Keep in mind that the information may not be accurate to the exact minute, but that the Kansas Bureau of Investigations, as well as the Sheriff’s office, updates the database as quickly as possible.
1. To begin your search, go to the Kansas Bureau of Investigations website: www.accesskansas.org/kbi/ro.shtml
2. Locate the links on the left side of the screen.
3. Click on the Conduct a Kansas Registered Sex Offender Search link located on the left side of the screen. It is the fifth link on the list.
4. You can search for registered offenders by name, county, zip code and city. If you search by name, you must fill in the last name of the individual you are searching for. The first name is optional but will help refine the search results. If you search by county, city, or zip code, keep in mind that the results will be limited to only those offenders residing within that area.
5. Each search will list the offenders within your search parameters. The last known address, county, race, sex, date of birth, date registered, and offense will be listed for each sex offender. If a sex offender has been convicted for multiple offenses, each offense will be listed. A picture of the sex offender is included next to the offender’s information. Above each house address is a date regarding the last time the offender’s address was verified. With each sex offender’s report, there is a large yellow button labeled View Map. If the sex offender is included in the mapping database, clicking this button will open up a map indicating the location of the sex offender in your city, county, or zip code area.
6. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will find the total number of registered sex offenders in your area. For example, if there were 398 total registered sex offenders within your search parameters, it would read, “There were 398 matching results found.”
Searching for registered sex offenders in Kansas is simple. All it requires is a quick visit to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation’s website. Whether you desire to search by the offender’s name, your city, your zip code, or by county, the database can limit the results to your request.
