Registered Sex Offenders
By law, convicted sex offenders must register with the County Sheriff's office of the county in which they reside. If an offender resides within the city limits of Lake Forest Park, the Sheriff's office sends notification of the offender's registration to the Lake Forest Park Police Department.

Sex Offenders are classified into one of three levels based upon the crime they were convicted of and their history:

Level 1
The vast majority of registered sex offenders are classified as Level 1 offenders. They are considered at low risk to re-offend. These individuals may be first time offenders and they usually know their victims.

Level 2
Level 2 offenders have a moderate risk of re-offending. They generally have more than one victim and the abuse may be long term. These offenders usually groom their victims and may use threats to commit their crimes. These crimes may be predatory with the offender using a position of trust to commit their crimes. Typically these individuals do not appreciate the damage they have done to their victims.

Level 3
Level 3 offenders are considered to have a high risk to re-offend. They usually have one or more victims and may have committed prior crimes of violence. They may not know their victim(s). The crime may show a manifest cruelty to the victim(s) and these offenders usually deny or minimize the crime. These offenders commonly have clear indications of a personality disorder.

The entire State of Washington has a little over 20,000 registered sex offenders. Of that number approximately 4,300 are registered in King County, and approximately 1,750 are registered in Snohomish County. So while it is important to be aware of registered sex offenders in your neighborhood, since we are such a mobile society, it is also important to practice safety precautions in all aspects of your life and travels.

Outside Resources
The Lake Forest Park Police Department has chosen to place links here to both the King County Sheriff's office and the Snohomish County Sheriff's office which list registered sex offenders in each county. While the City of Lake Forest Park has a total of 11 registered sex offenders within the city limits, there are other registered sex offenders who live just outside the city. By linking you to the County websites you will get a broader picture of offenders who live near your home or place of work. Each website also has answers to frequently asked questions and some additional safety information.

Washington State Sex Offender Information Center

The purpose of the Washington State Sex Offender Information Center is to provide information to the public concerning the location of sex offenders within Washington. This site is not intended to supplant the community notification process, but rather, it allows the criminal justice community to promote public awareness concerning the potential threat that sex offender's pose to Washington's citizens. An informed public is a safer public.
