Sex Offender Registry and Community Notification


*** Notice to Registered Sex Offenders of Potential Scam *** 

Nevada - The Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS), Sex Offender Registry has received reports of a potential scam in an effort to collect money from registered sex offenders. Calls are being made to offenders informing them they are non-compliant with their registration requirements, that a warrant has been issued for their arrest and that the offender must pay a fine in order to be compliant.

Sex Offenders are required by law to register in Nevada and failure to comply is a felony offense; however, the Nevada DPS and local Law Enforcement do not collect money from sex offenders for non-compliance or for warrants issued.

What to do if a suspected scam phone call is received:

•            Do not give out personal or work information

•           Do not arrange to meet with the caller

•           Do not make a payment to the caller

•           Immediately report the call to local law enforcement

•           Contact the Sex Offender Registry for compliance status

Sex offenders who have questions regarding compliance status should contact the Sex Offender Registry directly at: 775-684-6262 sorhelp@dps.state.nv.us
