2020 Oklahoma Statutes
Title 57. Prisons and Reformatories
§57-581. Short title - Legislative findings.

Universal Citation: 57 OK Stat § 57-581 (2020)

A. Sections 581 et seq. of this title shall be known and may be cited as the "Sex Offenders Registration Act".

B. The Legislature finds that sex offenders who commit other predatory acts against children and persons who prey on others as a result of mental illness pose a high risk of re-offending after release from custody. The Legislature further finds that the privacy interest of persons adjudicated guilty of these crimes is less important than the state's interest in public safety. The Legislature additionally finds that a system of registration will permit law enforcement officials to identify and alert the public when necessary for protecting the public safety.
