Arizona Revised Statutes

Pursuant to the Arizona Revised Statute, any person who has been convicted of certain sex offenses is required to register within 72 hours with the Sheriff of the county they reside in after their release or after moving to a new location. Please refer to A.R.S. § 13-3821 for specific offenses.

Pursuant to A.R.S. § 13-3826, a committee was established to formulate and adopt community notification guidelines. The committee is comprised of: the State Attorney General, State legislators, representatives from county sheriff’s departments, chiefs of police, county attorneys, adult probation officers, adult parole administrators, the Department of Public Safety Director, the Department of Transportation Director, and a licensed psychologist examiner. The community notification guidelines implemented shall provide for levels of notification based on the risk that a particular sex offender poses to the community.

Beginning June 1, 1996, any person who was convicted of certain sex offenses or released from jail, prison, or placed on probation on or after this date is subject to community notification. A risk assessment is conducted of the offender’s likelihood to re-offend and a risk level is assigned to the offender.

  • Level I (low risk)
  • Level II (intermediate risk)
  • Level III (high risk)

Level I's require in-home notification only where the offender resides. Level II's and Level III's require community notification. Per A.R.S. § 13-3827, the Arizona Department of Public Safety is required to maintain an internet database of all Level II and Level III sex offenders.

Registering Electronic Identifiers

Per A.R.S. § 13-3821 and A.R.S. § 13-3822, sex offenders are required to update their electronic identifiers.  Registration requirements for online identifiers are as follows:

All persons required to register pursuant to A.R.S. § 13-3821 (including juveniles) shall register their online identifier’s with the sheriff’s office within 72 hours excluding weekends and legal holidays after a person makes any change to any required online identifier, and before any use of a changed or new required online identifier to communicate on the internet. (This means you have 3 days once you get or change an identifier and before you begin using it). This applies to all registrants regardless of whether they were required to register their online identifier at the time of their initial registration. A violation of this requirement is a Class 4 Felony.

For the purpose of this requirement, an online identifier means:

Any electronic email address information and/or instant message, chat, social networking or other similar internet communication name, but DOES NOT include your social security number, date of birth or PIN number.

This includes the name(s) of any website or internet communication service where the identifier is being used or intends to be used. Example: MySpace, Yahoo Chat, etc.

The registrant must confirm the identifier each year and must notify the Gila County Sheriff’s Office in person of all changes.  Sex offender registrations, address changes and/or updates are done at the Gila County Sheriff's Office in Globe and the Gila County Sheriff's Office Substation in Payson, please see the contact information at the top of this page.
