When the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services receives notice that a registered sex offender is moving into that area, you will receive a notification. You will then be directed to the Maryland Sex Offender Registry at www.socem.info for more information. This website is provided for public safety and awareness, to alert possible victims of potential danger. Sex/criminal offenders have always lived in our communities, only in recent years have laws been passed which require convicted offenders to register with authorities. Unfortunately, many convicted offenders do re-offend. Through the Maryland Sex Offender Alert Program you can receive a phone call, email, or both when a convicted sex offender moves into your zip code area. This project is brought to you by the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services and the Governor┐s Office of Crime Control and Prevention.
