SEX OFFENDER SEARCH

Welcome

In order to maintain awareness of sex offenders living in your neighborhood, we have added a Sex Offender Registry to our website. The registry will allow you to enter any local address. It will then provide a list of all registered Santa Maria sex offenders living within a one-mile radius within the boundaries of Santa Maria . If you are looking for information about a particular sex offender, registered in Santa Maria, the registry can help there as well.

We encourage you to take advantage of the free email notification. When a sex offender registers with the Santa Maria Police Department you will be alerted if the offender's address is:

    1. in Santa Maria , and
    2. within one mile of the address you have entered on your subscription.
