TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – The state auditor has found problems with Arizona’s sex offender website, which is run by DPS.
On the sex offender information page of Arizona DPS’ portal, it states that DPS is responsible for maintaining the sex offender website and verifying the name, address and photograph of each sex offender in Arizona on a daily basis.
However, documents released in the Arizona Auditor General report show that there are issues.
The AG office sampled a few dozen of the nearly 15,000 sex offenders.
Here are some of the key findings:
2 of 33 offenders SHOULD have been included on the website, but they were not
3 of 12 should NOT have been included, but they were
DPS did not update photos for 2 of 15 sex offenders that it reviewed
The report reveals nearly a fifth of felony offense records they reviewed were missing.
