What You Need to Know About the Sex Offender Registry in Tennessee

The Tennessee State sex offender registry lists the names and addresses of all convicted sexual criminals once they are released from jail or prison. Registrants can be tracked by law enforcement, and parts of the registry are made available to the public on a website.

If you are registered, the public will have access to:

  • Your name
  • Current address
  • Photograph
  • Past sexual offenses

​​​​​​Offenders typically need to re-register at least once a year and every time that they move. Failing to re-register, according to state laws, is a criminal offense. Sex offenders are typically restricted from coming near playgrounds, elementary schools, or other places where children often gather.
