Tennessee’s Sex Offender Registry began in 1995 as a result of the enactment of federal laws that required states to create and maintain individual sex offender registries. Currently, Tennessee registers offenders who plead to certain enumerated offenses or equivalent offenses from other jurisdictions, no matter the date of conviction, plea, or expiration of sentence. Offenders who do not meet Tennessee’s criteria, but are required to register in other states, are also required to register under certain circumstances. All registered offenders are found on TBI’s internet site, and the entries contain information released pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated, §40-39-206. Sex offenders are registered by local law enforcement or the Board of Probation/Parole; however, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is responsible for the Registry website and for maintaining the original registration documents.
