Public Awareness and Action Resulting From Sex Offender Community Notification Laws

December 2008:

Few studies have examined the degree to which citizens access registry information or take preventative action in response. Survey responses from a representative sample of Nebraska residents were used to examine the degree to which people access registration information, the feelings this information invokes, and if preventative measures are subsequently taken by citizens. The results suggest that the majority of citizens had not accessed registry information, although the majority of people knew the registry existed, and few respondents took any preventative measures as a result of learning sex offender information. The implications of the results on notification laws are discussed. ..Source.. by Amy L. Anderson, Lisa L. Sample, University of Nebraska at Omaha
