What is SVOR?

Montana’s Sexual or Violent Offender Registration Act is designed to protect the public from sexual or violent offenders by requiring offenders to register with local law enforcement agencies in the jurisdiction where they reside. Information about these offenders is then made available to the public.

This Registry provides an up-to-date listing of sexual and violent offenders who are required to register their whereabouts. Disclaimer.

SVOR History

    Central Registry – created a registry, maintained by the Department of Corrections

    • Qualifying Offenses – required that only sexual offenders register, for a period of 10 years
    • Public Information – no provision making any registration information public
    • Penalty – penalty for failing to register was a misdemeanor
  • April 1995 Statute strengthend
    Lawmakers strengthened the registration statute:
    What became known as the “Sexual or Violent Offender Registration Act” and redefined the offenses requiring registration. Montana became one of the few states to register violent offenders in addition to sexual offenders.

- - DISCLAIMER - -

The Montana Sexual or Violent Offender Registration Unit collects information about registered sexual or violent offenders from the registering agency, which may be a court, a state or local correctional facility or a probation or parole agency, or directly from offenders.

The unit attempts to include only accurate, complete information in the Registry, and updates this information regularly. Users are cautioned that the information provided on this website is information of record that is reported to the unit and may not reflect the most recent residence, status or other information regarding an offender. The unit makes no express or implied guarantee concerning the accuracy of this data.

The main purpose of providing this data on the Internet is to make the information more easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individual. Users are cautioned that positive identification of an individual cannot be conclusively established by comparing name, date of birth, Social Security number or other information with that provided in this Registry. Comparisons based on appearance may also be misleading, and cannot establish a positive identification without some possibility of error.

Anyone who uses this information to injure, harass or commit a criminal act against any person may be subject to criminal prosecution.

Also note the following limitations and cautions.

  • The unit does not independently verify the registration information provided by the various registering agencies.
  • Because the Registry is dynamic in nature, you should check the site routinely to ensure that you have the most accurate information available. Printing or saving information from the Registry could result in using outdated information.
  • The Registry contains identifying information and information about the offense for which the sexual or violent offender is registered. It does not reflect the entire criminal history of a listed sexual or violent offender.
  • The offender mapping feature is provided through bing maps and the unit has no control over how bing locates an address from the Registry on its maps.

If you believe that any of the Registry information is in error, please contact the Registry.
