Registered Sex Offenders
Convicted sex offenders are required to register with local law enforcement in the jurisdiction where they live. The McAlester Police Department handles registration of these individuals for the City of McAlester. The names and addresses of sex offenders who register with the McAlester Police Department are provided to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, which maintains a public database of names, crimes, and addresses.
Registration involves the offender providing information that includes, but is not limited to, the offenders name and address, a photograph, and the offense the offender was convicted of or adjudicated for. All sex offenders must come to the McAlester Police Department to register, between the hours of 7:30 am and 5:30 pm, Monday through Thursday.
Registered sex offenders are required to periodically report to the McAlester Police Department to verify their address and to promptly report certain changes in the information as those changes occur. A sex offender who fails to comply with any registration requirement is subject to felony prosecution.
If you have any questions about sex offender registration in the City of McAlester, please call (918) 423-1212 ext. 2230.
