South Carolina has moved to a new sex offender management application called SORT. SORT is provided at no charge by the U.S. Department of Justice to the State of South Carolina. SORT is designed to make the sex offender registry process as efficient and effective as possible. This streamlined process also provides improved information sharing across all jurisdictions. SORT provides community notifications and automatic updates to the National Sex Offender Public Web Site. Other features include multiple photographs of the offender over time, a visual map of where the offender lives, a list of aliases the offender has used in the past, and a list of all of the sexually related offenses that an offender has been convicted of committing.
The South Carolina Sex Offender Registry can search by Name or Geographically.
