About the Entry



In late 2013, the Hawaii Department of the Attorney General Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center proposed the idea to provide the public with supplemental mobile access to information regarding Hawaii’s sex offenders and other covered offenders. An online registry already exists however Hawaii Attorney General, David Louie, wanted to “[take] what was an already great public service directly to mobile device users, where they are most likely to use it.”

On January 6, 2014, the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center released Hawaii Sex Offender Search for Android and Apple mobile operating systems in partnership with the Hawaii Office of Information Management and Technology and the Hawaii Information Consortium.

Hawaii Sex Offender Search allows Hawaii citizens, visitors, and general public another means to inform themselves regarding specific or general sex offenders and other covered offenders in Hawaii. Although individuals listed in the directory have committed criminal offenses, the application information is established on the individual’s criminal conviction and is not based on an estimate of the offender’s level of dangerousness.

Hawaii Sex Offender Search provides additional information regarding the Hawaii sex offender and other covered offender laws, statutes, and frequently asked questions; and contact information for the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center if data discrepancies are discovered. The application also warns users that misuse of information contained in the registry will be subject to legal and/or criminal repercussions.
