How often is the public notified about a sex offender's move to a community?

Accuracy of Sex Offender Notification

In most states, sex offenders will be placed into a specific classification according to their degree of risk. While they will typically be listed on a registered sex offender list, they may also be the focus of flyers and even letters to individuals in the community. Risks levels are typically rated low, moderate, or high.
In most cases, the following may occur:
* Neighborhoods are typically notified of high risk offenders.
* Schools, day cares, summer camps, and other organizations that involve children are typically notified of moderate and high offenders.
* Law enforcement agencies are notified of all sex offenders.
