You are legally required to update the information on your sex offender registration. If you move, change jobs, or leave or change schools, you have 24 hours to reach out to the appropriate police department.

Additionally, you will have three days to notify the State Bureau of Identification of these changes.

If you move, work, or go to school out of state, you still have to notify the Maine State Bureau of Identification. The Bureau will then forward the information on to the local law enforcement agency at your destination. At that point, your new state’s sex offender registration requirements will apply.

MAINE’S SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION VERIFICATION PROCESS

The State Bureau of Identification has a verification process for all currently-registered sex offenders to ensure their information is current and up to date. The timing of this process depends on the severity of the conviction and which tier you fall under:

  • Tier I registrants have to verify their information every year for 10 years;
  • Tier II registrants have to verify every six months for 25 years; and
  • Tier III registrants have to verify every three months for the rest of their life
  • Ten days before the verification date, the Bureau of Identification sends a verification form to the
  • currently-listed address. The post office cannot forward this form. You then have five days from
  • receiving the form to fill it out and bring it, along with a new photo, to the local police station.
