The site was established in accordance with HR 3486 in order to provide information such as names, addressed, physical descriptions, pictures and conditions of release regarding high-risk offenders.
"This new Web site will give Oregonians information about the most predatory sex offenders in their communities," said Gov. Ted Kulongoski. "This is one of many tools we need to keep our communities safe. It is important to remember that most sexual offenders have ever been convicted and are therefore not in this database. This is why it is imperative for parents to be ever vigilant of our children and with whom they associate."
