Information about registered sex offenders can be obtained by contacting Sgt. Carrie Lopes.
Sex offenders are classified according to the degree of dangerousness they pose to the public and their likelihood to re-offend. The classifications are as follows:
- Level 1 or "low risk" offender
- Level 2 or "moderate risk" offender
- Level 3 or "high risk" offender
- Level 3 + sexually violent predator
Information about a sex offender is available to the public only if the offender has a duty to register and has been finally classified by the board as a level 2 or level 3 or level 3+offender. Current law prohibits the dissemination of information unless and until the offender is classified as a Level 2, Level 3 or Level 3+ offender. The law strictly prohibits the dissemination of information on Level 1, "low risk" offenders.
Any member of the public who is at least 18 years of age or older may request sex offender information in person at the Provincetowen Police Department. After presenting proper identification, the requester must fill out a sex offender request form.
