The number of individuals required to register in California continues to decrease, according to the California Sex Offender Management Board (CASOMB). During the past two months, the total number of individuals required to register decreased by 532 and the total number of registrants who are homeless decreased by 422.
“It appears that the Tiered Registry Law is having the desired effect, that is, it is leading to the removal of registrants who do not pose a current danger,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.
In addition, the California Department of Justice reported during last week’s CASOMB meeting, that there are 80,610 registrants living in the community. Of that total, there are 18,993 registrants who have failed to register on time.
