Each Maryland County and Baltimore City has a "designated local law enforcement unit" that serves as a local, in-person registration site for Child Sexual Offenders and a mail-in for periodic registration of Sexually Violent Predators.
A sex offender who does not register his or her information at the appropriate times is subject to jail time and a fine. We offer helpthrough a confidential national Helpline 1. A person who moves to Maryland and was convicted of an offense that in another state that constitutes a registerable crime in Maryland must also register.
If the offender is given jail time for the offense, he or she must register prior to release from prison.
Visiting Courthouse? Information provided on the registration of a sex offender includes his or her name, address and age. All registrants must register with a supervising authority or with the designated local law enforcement unit. The registry ensures that all information on sex offenders in Maryland is up to date and accurate.
Tier II - These registrants have been convicted in Maryland of a crime listed below or convicted in another jurisdiction of a Tier II offense. What are the tier levels? Alleged violations of law by registrants under Maryland's program should be reported to any local law enforcement unit.
The Coalition works to end sexual violence through public policy, education, community outreach, technical assistance, and legal services.
