California's Megan's Law allows law enforcement to notify the public of serious and high-risk sex offenders who reside in, are employed in, or visit a community. The law requires the California Dept. of Justice to produce a CD-ROM or other electronic medium containing information on serious and high-risk sex offenders. Access to the CD-ROM is mandated to be available to the public at all sheriff's departments and police departments in cities with a population of 200,000 or more as well as through the California Dept. of Justice. Many police departments with smaller jurisdictions have also voluntarily elected to make the CD-ROM available to the public. This report covers 1998 and 1999.
