I would like to receive a letter when a sex offender moves into Newark. Can I be put on a list to be notified?

State law provides that notification be sent to “members of the public who are likely to encounter a sex offender” and includes “schools, licensed day care facilities, public libraries, and other accessible public facilities with in the community.” Letters are only sent to these organizations. However, in cases of a Tier III offender, door-to-door notification is made in the area of the offender’s residence and/or information is provided via telephone using the InformMe automated telephone notification system. If you are in charge of a community organization with a facility accessible to the public or a licensed day care center and do not currently receive sex offender notifications, please contact Det. William Anderson to see if your organization meets the qualifications to receive notifications.
