Sex Offender Information Requests
The Sex Offender Registry Board is the state agency responsible for keeping a database of convicted sex offenders and classifying each offender so that the public may receive information about dangerous sex offenders who live or work in each community. The goal of the Sex Offender Registry is to educate the public and to prevent further victimization.
A person may request sex offender information through the Wrentham Police Department OR through the Sex Offender Registry Board. If the request is processed by the Wrentham Police Department it must be made in person and the requestor must present proper identification as well as fill out a sex offender request form. There is no fee for processing a request.
If the completed request identifies a sex offender, the Wrentham Police Department will release the name, home address, work address, age, sex, height, weight, eye color and hair color of the identified offender as well as the offenses committed, the dates of conviction and/or adjudication and, if available, a photo.
All information provided to the public will include language prohibiting the misuse of sex offender information for harassment or discriminatory purposes.
All records of inquiry will be kept confidential, except to assist or defend in a criminal prosecution.
The Wrentham Police Department will not release information identifying the victim by name, address or relation to the offender.
Any information provided by the Wrentham Police Department is limited only to offenders who have been finally classified by the Sex Offender Registry Board as Level 2 or Level 3 offenders or Sexually Violent Predators. The law prohibits the Board and police departments from disseminating any information on a sex offender who has not been finally classified by the Board or who has been finally classified as a Level 1 offender.
