Available Information
If someone is registered with the county as a **** offender, but does not appear on the ACIC web site, due to the level of their registry, is there a way to obtain their registry information. I have been told by a deputy that someone is registered with the county, but they are not on the ACIC website. Can I obtain their registry information?

As I deal with the registration of **** Offenders in Union County i would like to answer your question.
We, the Union County Sheriff's Office cannot tell you (community in general) any information concerning a level 1 or 2 offender. This is not by our choosing it is strictly regulated by the state. The link that follows is the "handbook". It refers to various statutes.


There are strict guidelines that we must follow as to notification of the community in the area of **** offender notification. There are four levels 1-4 with 4 being the most serious.

If this was a level3 or 4 offender (Someone you would see on the ACIC website) we would be more than happy to provide you the various information concerning the offender.

Based on information obtained from the risk assessment process, offenders are assigned the following levels: Level 1: Low Risk; Level 2: Moderate Risk; Level 3: High Risk; Level 4: ****ually Violent Predator.

Community Notification Levels
After completing the assessment process, each offender will be assigned one of the following community notification levels.

• Level 1: Typically offenders in this category have no prior history of ****ual offending and the community can be protected with notification inside the home and to local law enforcement authorities.

• Level 2: Typically offenders in this category have a history of ****ual offending where notification inside the home is insufficient. Community notification requires notice to the offender’s known victim preference and those likely to come into contact with the offender.

• Level 3: Typically offenders in this category have a history of repeat ****ual offending, and/or strong antisocial, violent or predatory personality characteristics. These are individuals whose offense and criminal history require notification throughout the community. ]

Offenders who appear for the assessment under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs or who fail to timely disclose the use of medications, individuals who fail to appear for any phase of the assessment, individuals who are aggressive, threatening, or disruptive to the point that SOSRA staff cannot proceed with the assessment process, and individuals who voluntarily terminate the assessment process having been advised of the potential consequences will be classified as being a Level 3 or referred to SOAC for ****ually Violent Predator status.

• Level 4: ****ually Violent Predator refers to a person who has been adjudicated guilty of a **** offense or acquitted on the grounds of mental disease or defect of a **** offense that makes the person likely to engage in predatory **** offenses. The designation indicates that the highest and most visible means of community notification is required.

Discretion must be used in applying the guidelines to any offender. The harm that may be caused by a particular notification must be weighed against the protection that would be afforded the public. For example, notifying the neighbors about a Level 1 or Level 2 incest offender may further victimize the offender’s spouse and child if the offender’s family is known to the community at large.
Level 1 / Low Community Notification

• The law enforcement agency having jurisdiction, and other law enforcement agencies likely to encounter the offender. This may include state and federal law enforcement agencies, campus police, school safety officers, and the like.

• All adult members of the household where the offender is residing or intends to reside, unless the offender is residing or intends to reside in a residential treatment facility, group home, foster home, half-way house or other supervised living arrangement, in which case only the residence supervisor or foster parent should be notified.

• Victims or guardians of victims of adult offenders are notified through the VINE system operated by the ADC. Victims or guardians of victims of juvenile offenders should be notified by law enforcement.

Level 2 / Moderate Community Notification

• All parties specified in level 1 must be notified.

• The heads of agencies and organizations that serve individuals in the offender’s target group must be notified. This may include, but is not limited to, schools, day care centers, community and youth groups, religious organizations, libraries, the DHS, women’s organizations and shelters, park security, businesses frequented by children.

• Employers must be notified.

• State licensing boards will be notified as deemed appropriate by local law enforcement, when the person is licensed by the board.

• Individuals or heads of families with members within the offender’s target group who are likely to encounter the offender, or live in the same neighborhood as the offender must be notified.

• Offender Fact Sheet information on adult offenders rated at Level 2 with a victim who is fourteen (14) years of age or younger will be available to the public on the ACIC web site (http://www.acic.org/).

Level 3 / High Community Notification

• All of the entities and individuals listed for Levels 1 and 2 must be notified, unless to do so would cause harm to the victim(s).

• Notification must be made to any member of the community whom the offender is likely to encounter, based on the offender’s prior history, recreational or religious interests, employment, or the characteristics of the offender’s victims.

• Notification should be conducted face-to-face between law enforcement and citizens to the extent possible. Those likely to encounter the offender, including all neighbors, are to be given an Offender Fact Sheet and cautioned about the appropriate use of the information.

• Offender Fact Sheet information on offenders rated at Level 3 (high) or Level 4 (****ually Violent Predator) will be available to the public on the ACIC web site (http://www.acic.org/).

Level 4 / ****ually Violent Predator

• All of the entities and individuals listed for Levels 1 through 3 must be notified.

• Notification of members of the general public in the vicinity of where the offender lives, travels and works should be done. It is preferable to notify these individuals in a face-to-face meeting, and to encourage assistance in monitoring the offender rather than instigating harassment, fear or hatred. However, open community meetings or meetings with neighborhood watch groups are also acceptable.

• Any individual having good reason may request an Offender Fact Sheet from the Chief Law Enforcement Officer. Each individual given an Offender Fact Sheet must be advised that it is not for publication, but may only be used in accordance with the law and these guidelines.

• The media may also be used to conduct level 4 notification, if the Chief Law Enforcement Officer having jurisdiction deems it necessary to protect the community.

• Printed material, posters, and electronic media may be used to notify and inform the public in the most necessary and potentially dangerous situations.

• The Offender Fact Sheets of all ****ually Violent Predators will be available to the public on the ACIC website.
