The North Carolina General Assembly created the North Carolina Sex Offender and Public Protection Registry in January 1996. This law outlines registration requirements for persons living in North Carolina, non-resident students and non-resident workers.
The Registry serves as a resource to help protect and inform the public. The North Carolina Sex Offender Registration Program, a publication of the North Carolina Sheriffs' Association, provides more detailed information about the state’s Sex Offender Registry.
