How are sex offenders tracked?

Tracking Sex Offenders and Megan's Law

The California Department of Justice maintains a database with a list of registered Megan's law offenders. Sex offenders are required to register with their local law office, and they must update their information on a yearly basis, within five working days of their birthday. However, some sex offenders are required to update every 30 to 90 days, depending on their circumstances.
If sex offenders do not up-date their registration as required, they are shown on the Website as being in violation. If they move or become homeless, they must contact their local agency within five days to update their registration, also.
