I used the map to check my neighborhood and had no idea that a registered sex offender lived just a few doors away from me. This map will help show just how many sex offenders are located within a 3 miles radius of your house.  The map not only lists their address, but also what they were actually CONVICTED of.

Sex offenders are not allowed to turn their porch lights on during trick or treating times, but it's good to know which houses to avoid on Halloween, because I know from experience, kids will knock on my door even when the lights are turned off.

So, for safety sake, share with your friends and family.

It's important to note that the information on this map is meant to provide you with information on keeping your family safe, not so you can harass someone who might live near you. Keep in mind, if you harass them, you could end up in jail, because harassment is against the law.


The information in the Idaho sex offender registry is provided only for the purpose of protecting the public. It is not to be used for the purpose of harassing or intimidating anyone. A person who uses registry information to commit a criminal act against another person is subject to arrest and prosecution under sections 18-8326 or 18-8413, Idaho Code.
