An Alaska sex offender search can be conducted through the Alaska Department of Public Safety (DPS). Anyone can use the DPS sex offender registry by searching for an offender’s name, address, city, zip code, or registration status. An individual convicted of one (1) sex offense (non-aggravated) or one (1) kidnapping must register annually for 15 years following their release. Sex offenders convicted of two (2) or more sex offenses (including child kidnapping) or one (1) aggravated sex offense are required to register every year for life.
