Anyone can perform a Mississippi sex offender check, either to search for a person by name or to view a list of registered offenders within a certain area. All sex offenders must be registered within the Mississippi Sex Offender Registry, which can be viewed online by the public. As per §45.33.33, it is considered a felony for a sex offender to fail to register (or reregister) themselves at the Department of Public Safety Driver’s License Station. Failure to do so will result in their arrest.
