Locating a registered sex offender in the State of Wyoming can be accomplished on the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) website. The below guide will instruct you on how to search for offenders in a specific location (address, zip code, city) and how to search for an offender by name, phone number, or internet name/email. Be sure to use the search portal for informative purposes only; any misuse of the DCI search portal could result in criminal prosecution.
Offenders must register with DCI in accordance with § 7-19-302 of the Wyoming Sex Offender Registration Act. Failure to register may result in up to a one thousand dollar ($1,000) fine, five (5) year imprisonment, or both.
