What is Megan’s Law and how can I find out if a sex offender lives in my neighborhood?
Megan's law makes it legal for the public to learn about registered sex offenders in the State of California and in their own community. The information can now be viewed online through the California Attorney General's Office. You can access this site through the Megan's Law link on the "Helpful Links" page of the Richmond PD website.
