Sex offenders database- Lane County, Oregon

We want to note that these sites only give us public information on sex offenders who are registered in Lane County, and by no means account for every sex offender.  Still, as parents, we think it is wise to "know who is in your neighborhood" as much as possible.   Here are two different sites that can help you research your neighborhood and research neighborhoods as you are looking to purchase a home:  Family Watch  and State of Oregon Sex Offenders.
Please contact us if you need any assistance on how to operate these sites.

It's also good to note that strangers account for less than 5% of the sex offenders on the registry. 95% of sex offenders are first time offenders and will never offend again.

The reason is that in 95% of the cases of child abuse (including all forms of abuse) the offender is known to the child: family, friends, neighbors, babysitter, etc. You really need to know who your children know. Don't be hysterical, but be cautious and involved in your child's life. Just because
someone is friendly doesn't mean they are trustworthy. Trust is earned and
not given.

It is actually a BAD thing to rely on a registry.  Why would I, a woman and a parent, say such a thing?  The registry instills a false sense of security in homeowners and tenants.  Like any other database, it is only as good as the information it contains.   With over 100,000 people on California's registry, for example, (and over 750,000 nationwide) it is impossible for the average person or the average police officer to know who is truly dangerous, who is stupid, who was curious, etc.  Finally, it is a waste of scarce law enforcement resources to monitor all of these people, when the offender reoffense rate is about 5.5%.  Seems to me that the registry is a data dump used by wannabe vigilantes.  As the previous poster wrote, the majority of those who harm children (Sandusky, priests, scout leaders) are NOT on a registry.  Directing your clients to such a poor tool is irresponsible and unprofessional.
