There are just over 11,000 registered sex offenders in the state of Massachusetts. While that is a lot of predators, it is a vast improvement from when they had nearly 20,000 registered offenders in 2005. The state’s Sex Offender Registry Board is run by the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security.
The significant decrease in the number of registered sex offenders that has been taking place is most likely a result of modifications, that occurred in 2006, to Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Law. From then on, registered sex offenders has to provide all the addresses they reside at; this includes any additional homes that are not considered to be their permanent addresses. Also, an offender must be classified in the registry before they are released back into the community. The most significant changes were that any offender who is caught unregistered will get lifetime parole.
