An Oklahoma sex offender search can be executed using the search portal available on the Department of Corrections website. Offenders are required to register in accordance with § 583 of the Oklahoma Sex Offenders Act. Once registered, their information will be made available to the public for informative purposes and so that individuals may take the precautions necessary to protect themselves and their families. Any misuse of this information, including harassment or threats against an offender, may result in criminal prosecution.

Navigate to the Oklahoma Sex & Violent Offender Registry homepage to begin. Read over the disclaimer and ensure that you fully understand the policies of the search portal.
If you feel comfortable with the policies, select the small checkbox and click Submit.
