Failure to Report There is zero tolerance for non-compliant offenders. Individuals included within the registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction record and state law. The public is encouraged to report any suspicious activity they observe to their local authorities and to report any information about an offender whose name is on the sex offender list to the S. As such, the registry may contain erroneous information. A positive identification of an individual cannot be conclusively established by comparing name, date of birth, social security number or other information with that provided in this registry. The task of the registration process and enforcement is assigned to the Sex Offender Registration Enforcement Unit. Offender Residency In addition to locating non-compliant offenders, this Unit investigates reports of any offender residing within 1, feet of a school or childcare facility. However, this information can change quickly. Marshals are contacted regarding offenders resulting in the offenders being prosecuted at a federal level for non-compliance. Furthermore the database is compiled based, in part, upon information provided by the convicted offender and such information is not independently verified by MDPS.
