Megan’s Law is named after seven-year-old Megan Kanka, a New Jersey girl who was raped and killed by a known child molester who had moved in across the street from the family without their knowledge. In the wake of the tragedy, the Kanka’s sought to have local communities warned about sex offenders in the area. Now, California’s Megan’s Law gives the public information of the whereabouts of dangerous sex offenders so that citizens may protect themselves and their children. The law also authorizes local law enforcement to notify the public about high-risk and serious sex offenders who reside in, are employed in or frequent the community.
Megan’s Law is not intended to punish the offender and specifically prohibits using the information to harass or commit any crime against the offender. It recognizes that public safety is best served when registered sex offenders are not concealing their location to avoid harassment.
In an effort to keep citizens informed in a growing population, the Clovis Police Department has created a Sex Registrant Information Line. Any Clovis resident can call the new number to gain information on sex registrants living within the Clovis city limits, or ask general questions regarding our sex registration program.
If you would like to speak to a Clovis Police Department employee regarding further information, please call the Sex Registrant Information Line at (559) 324-3474. This line is available 24/7. You will receive a call back as soon as possible. Sex registrants may also use this number to schedule appointments to register annually, or when moving.
