Registered Sex Offenders

Sexual Offender Information

The North Smithfield Police Department is releasing information Pursuant to RI General Laws 11-37.1-1 et seq., also known as the Sexual Offender Registration and Community Notification Act. These individuals are subject to community notification pursuant to RI General Laws §11-37.1-1 which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release from prison when the Sex Offender Board of Review determines that the release of information will enhance public safety and protection.

The individuals who appear on these notifications have been convicted of a sex offense, which also requires registration with law enforcement pursuant to RI General Laws §11-37.1-1 ET SEQ.

These offenders have served the sentence imposed by the court. This notification is not to increase fear in the community. It is the belief of law enforcement that an informed public is a safe public.

Website information about a sex offender is available to the public only if the Sex Offender Board of Review has classified the offender as a Level 3, or as a Level 2 as of January 1, 2006. Per Rhode Island Law, information pertaining to Level 1 sex offenders cannot be posted on the website.

No agency, including any Law Enforcement Agency or any state agency, may direct where the offender does or does not reside, nor can these agencies direct where he works or goes to school. The risk level of this offender has been determined by the Rhode Island Sex Offender Community Notification Board and is based largely on his potential to re-offend.

WARNING: Information contained on this website should not be used to threaten or harass any identified individual as such conduct may be subject to criminal prosecution.
