Registered Sex Offenders

Sex Offender Notification


The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office in compliance with the Sex offender Registration and Community Notification Law will disseminate information about certain sex offenders to the community if, in our opinion, releasing the information will enhance the protection of the public.


The Sex offender Registration law established a Special Bulletin Notification (SBN) process in which the Department of Corrections provides detailed information to local law enforcement on certain sex offenders scheduled to be released in their localities. Special Bulletins also include the offender's physical characteristics including a photo, the offender's offenses and the offense profile, and the offender's release plan including name and phone number of the supervising agent. 


There are three levels of community notification provided by the Department of Corrections upon the release of an offender:


  • Level 1; is limited to law enforcement

  • Level 2; is specific to individuals, facilities and groups based on the particulars of     the case.  This bulletin may go to schools, certain neighborhoods, community groups, day care facilities and park areas.

  • Level 3; is a community-wide notification effort and can be done through the media, door-to-door notification, and/or a community meeting.


The release of this information is for the protection of the community and any abuse to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated by the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office and may lead to criminal charges.  All notifications are reviewed by the Sheriff’s Office before public notification is made.
