The Nevada sex offender registry is open to the public and its database of registered sex offenders can be accessed online. An online Nevada sex offender search can be performed based on either an offender’s name, their license plate, or by searching a given area for registered offenders. In this database, all registered offenders have their name, a photograph of their likeness, a list of aliases, and their current address of residence accessible to the public.
