… Oregon is two years behind entering names into its electronic database of registered sex offenders. It’s so out of date that local police don’t rely on it. Oregon’s public website lists only a fraction — 2.5 percent — of the state’s more than 25,000 sex offenders. So residents can’t really tell who and how many sex offenders are in their neighborhoods.
In fact, Oregon has the most registered sex offenders per capita of any state except one, national statistics show.
