Types of Notifications

Users of the Missouri State Highway Patrol Sex Offender Registry Community Notification Program have two notification options that may be utilized:

  • Notification by address: This type of notification allows users to enter up to five physical addresses to track. Additionally, the user must select a radius around each address spanning from 500 feet up to 5 miles. If at any time a sexual offender registers a home, work, or school address located within the user's selected radius an e-mail notification will be sent notifying the user of the sex offender's registration information.
  • Notification by offender: This type of notification allows users to track a specific sex offender regardless of the proximity of that offender to any given address. If this notification option is selected, the user will receive a notification e-mail anytime that the selected offender changes their registered home, work, or school address. Up to five separate sex offenders may be tracked at any single time utilizing this option.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I have enrolled my e-mail address and password in the community notification program but never received the initial confirmation e-mail to validate my account. What do I do?
A: Your e-mail account may have blocked the confirmation e-mail message due to a spam filter. If your e-mail account has a spam or junk folder, you may need to check this folder for the confirmation message.

Q: What do I need to do if I forget my community notification enrollment password?
A: You may reset your password by selecting the above link.
You will need to provide your e-mail address and supply a new password. A confirmation e-mail will then be sent to your e­ mail account. Once you click on the link contained in this e-mail your new password will take effect.

Q: I entered an address, but the system told me that it was unable to map the address I had entered. What should I do?
A: The Missouri State Highway Patrol makes every attempt to keep its mapping software up-to-date, however, occasionally new addresses, or addresses in rural areas will not be able to be mapped via this site. If this happens, it is suggested that you attempt to use a different address that can be mapped that is near the address you are trying to track.

Q: How do I change the e-mail address where my alerts are sent?
A: At this time, you cannot change the e-mail address associated with your account. Instead, you will need to delete the e­mail address that you are currently using from the Community Notification System by selecting the above link.
Once you have deleted your old e-mail address you may re-enroll with a new e-mail address.

Q: Can I receive alerts at multiple e-mail accounts?
A: At this time, you cannot receive notification alerts at multiple e-mail accounts via one enrollment. However, you may still enroll each of your e-mail addresses separately to receive alerts.

Q: When will the Missouri State Highway Patrol Sex Offender Registry Community Notification System send me e-mail notifications?
A: The Community Notification System will send you an e-mail immediately when you initially enroll in order to confirm your e-mail address. If at any time you add or change an address or an offender that you are tracking, you will receive another confirmation e-mail within 24 hours. Lastly, anytime that an offender moves into your selected radius or a specific offender that you are tracking changes their address information, you will receive an e-mail within 24 hours from the time that the information is entered into the Missouri Sex Offender Registry.
