Sexual Offender Registration
Offenders must present a valid registration receipt from their local sheriff’s office for all registrations, excluding currently active re-registrations. This requirement applies to various situations, including, but not limited to: non-compliant registrants, new registrants, temporary out-of-state registrants, and incarcerated releases.
Registration forms issued by the sheriff's office are valid for three business days.
Prior to departing the country, offenders must complete an International Travel Form at least 21 days before their departure date. The form should include their passport details, itinerary, and the address of their residence outside the country. The completed form must be submitted to the MSOR by either mail (3891 Highway 468 W Pearl, MS 39208), email (MSOR@dps.ms.gov) or by fax (601-933-2695).
There is no grace period between the date an offender becomes noncompliant and the day they must appear for registration. Offenders may register up to 10 days in advance.
Electronic monitoring forms are valid for one year only. If an offender's form has expired, an updated form must be provided during the registration process.
Offenders are required to pay an $11.00 registration fee each time they register. There is no requirement to pay fines on the account before registering. Fines are only necessary to resolve a license suspension.
For any questions or concerns, please contact the MSOR hotline at 601-987-1540.
