Abstract:

Registered sex offenders themselves are an important source of information that can inform policy and practice on the issues of notification, registration requirements, and the impact and outcome of sex offender clustering on communities. These offenders can provide information on factors influencing their decision-making related to where they reside, including the identification of what characteristics “pull” or “push” them into or away from particular neighborhoods. In addition, they can provide insight into their own offending patterns, their prior victimization, and how their own behavior is or is not affected by notification and registration requirements. Due to the stigma attached to their offender status, these offenders may be more vulnerable and provide increased targets or opportunities for other offenders. They also have unique challenges associated with their decision on where to reside, including financial concerns, housing availability and rental policies, and potential conflict with neighbors. This research included an in-person interview component with high-risk registered sex offenders in Phoenix, Arizona. The research addressed behavior, motivations, and decision-making patterns for sex offenders, through an examination of their crime patterns, views on the registration and notification process, and their perceptions of sex offender clustering. Approximately 100 high-risk offenders were interviewed and provided insight into their own views on how to best manage and mitigate the impact of sex offenders on communities.
