Sex Offender RegistryTennessee's Sex Offender Registry was created in 1995 in response to new federal laws that required the states to create and maintain individual sex offender registries. Offenders in Tennessee who plead guilty to, or are found guilty of, sexual related offenses are listed on the registry. Also listed are individuals living in Tennessee but who were found guilty in another jurisdiction of a sexually related offense.
While sexual offenders are registered by local law enforcement and/or the Board of Probation and Parole, it is the responsibility of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to maintain the registry website as well as the original registration documentation.
If you have information related to an offender, or would like to inquire about information contained on the registry, call the Tennessee Sex Offender Registry Hotline at 888-837-4170. The hotline hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 9:30pm Eastern, and on weekends from 8:00am to 6:30pm (closed on Holidays).
