Riverside Police Department
Central Investigations Bureau
290 PC Compliance Officer
The Riverside Police Department is
committed to providing outstanding Police service by meeting
the needs of the Community. The 290 PC / Sex Registrant
Compliance Officer position was created to take a pro-active
position to ensuring the safety of the residents of
Riverside by working with several State and Federal Law
Enforcement Agencies to ensure the agreed terms of Sex
Registration are being abided by. Our goal is to have 100%
compliance through education to the public, the registrant
and strict compliance enforcement.
California has required sex offenders to register with their local law enforcement agencies since 1947. California's Megan's Law provides the public with certain information on the whereabouts of sex offenders so that members of our local communities may protect themselves and their children. Megan's Law is named after seven-year-old Megan Kanka, a New Jersey girl who was raped and killed by a known registered sex offender who had moved across the street from the family without their knowledge. In the wake of the tragedy, the Kankas sought to have local communities warned about sex offenders in the area. All states now have a form of Megan's Law.
