Sex Offender Registry

The sex offender registry is a public database containing information on registered sex offenders in our community. If you are interested in sex offenders living in other communities, please visit the National Sex Offender Public Website, which can connect you to nearly any other jurisdiction in the United States, Tribal Territories or extended US territories.

  • If you are a resident who is concerned that a sex offender may be residing or working near you without a current registration.

Sex Offender Accountability Program (SOAP)

A proactive effort is made by members of the Dothan Police Department, including criminal investigators and patrol officers, to meet with sex offenders about once a month in their residence. This effort is made to ensure compliance with the Community Notification Act and detect non-compliance more quickly than would otherwise be possible.
