Police Department Offers Public Sex Offender List

Posted: Updated:

If you are interested in finding out who is a sex offender in your area there’s a free way to check.

The Minot Police Department allows the public to come in to their office and use a program that lists sex offenders in the Minot area. While you can't check an individual name, you can see who the offenders are in a particular area. You can also see people who may not live in Minot, but work here.

“You may have a name of somebody, but that's not particularly helpful. If you come down to the police department you can look on the lobby computer. If there is an offender living in your neighborhood, you can look that person up and see what they look like. That way you have a face with the name,” says Maggie Tygart of the Minot PD.

To look up sex offenders in the entire state, you can visit the North Dakota Attorney General website. The site allows you to plug in your exact address and check a certain radius.
