AZ: Audit finds issues with state’s sex offender website

Source: 10/1/21

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.

And the reason for putting all this time, energy, resources and money towards maintaining the site is for what reason again?…

Ah, another after-the-fact “feel good” policy doing nothing at all.

Most of Arizona’s sex offender laws are inherited from California, people forced to register in AZ need to also support California’s ACSOL in the fight against Megan’s law and the DOJ, Navada too.
I was looking up people forced to register in my neighborhood this morning and was shocked at how many SVP’S live in my community, as I kept scrolling down i came across my face and personal information listed right along side these violent offenders and some of them even had a lower statick99 score then me WTF.
It’s scary as Hell not knowing who might show up at your house to try and kill you or if people in the community are gonna start protesting in front of your home shaming you in front of your wife and kids.

Good luck

i mean these stories are put out there by the ministry of propaganda to push an agenenda!

On a tangent, I wonder if ACSOL has reviewed our registry system is up to date?

I would like to review any known available audits upon these registration databases. Too often the misuse of said data collective is never mentioned I’ll just bet. It is the inappropriate use that always goes underreported for leo. Same goes for cop killing citizens is always underreported as murder. A fact is these sex offender databases are never completely accurate! The information demanded is public yet even the non public data has been breached by certain entities. When it comes to gov database security the people will continue to chase their tails.

And I’m sure every Arizona registrant whose data is outdated or incorrect has committed at least a dozen sex crimes since the errors occurred, right? Surely, an incorrect address, unregistered vehicle, or omission of an annual update with the exact same information as the year before was the only missing item in the extensive preparation of sex crime planning.
