Megan’s Law Helpline Provides Information on Sex Offenders
The National Megan’s Law Helpline has been launched to provide support on accessing sex offender registration information.
The helpline can assist with questions about responsible use of information; sexual abuse prevention resources; and accessing crime victim support services. Parents for Megan’s Law (PFML) staff provide assistance in accessing state sex offender registries, and prevention specialists provide support to parents and community members to assist in their sexual abuse prevention education strategies. Certified rape crisis counselors are also available to support all victims of violent crime and to provide geographically appropriate referrals.
The Sex Offender Registration Tips Program provides an opportunity to report registrants who are failing to comply with registration requirements, employment or supervision restrictions, or who are in positions of trust where they can access children. For information, call (888) ASK-PFML. Tips can be also provided at www.parentsformegans-law.org.
