Sex Offender Registration Procedures

The following new procedures established by the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) for registering as a sex offender in Yuma County will be effective as of November 6, 2018.

  1. Sex Offender Registration & Address Change: Initial registrations and change of address registrations will be by appointment only. Sex Offender Registration appointments need to be made by telephone and will be available as follows:

    Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
    9:00 AM–12:00 PM; and 1:00–3:00 PM
    Homeless Registrations ONLY: Initial homeless sex offender registrations will be by appointment. After the initial registration has been completed, homeless sex offenders must check in and complete a new “Arizona Department of Public Safety Sex Offender Registration” form every 90 days. The front office staff will provide the forms upon request. No appointment is needed for the 90 day check in.

  2. Other Offender Registration Updates: Sex offenders already registered with the YCSO that have updates other than an address change, i.e., vehicle, phone, employment, etc., may contact the YCSO Records Department at (928) 329-2254 to provide the information telephonically.

  3. Walk-Ins: Other than coming in for your scheduled appointment, or to schedule an appointment, there will be NO same day walk-in appointments and/or special requests to speak to Sex Offender Compliance Team personnel.

  4. Online Identifiers: Registration and/or updates of electronic identifiers are to be completed on-line on the YCSO website on the Sex Offenders ID Registration page. Online identifier means any electronic e-mail address information or instant message, chat, social networking or other similar internet communication name. This includes the name(s) of any website or internet communication service where the identifier is being used or intends to be used. Example: MySpace, Facebook, Snapchat, etc.

  5. Arizona Identification/Driver’s License: Obtaining an Arizona ID card or Driver’s License is mandatory. Prior to applying for an Arizona ID card or driver’s license, offenders must first register with the YCSO. A form and photo will be provided at the completion of the registration process which must be provided to the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicle Division. The YCSO no longer requires a copy of the newly issued ID card or driver’s license.

    NOTE: Sex offenders who are new to the state of Arizona will need to have their birth certificate, a government issued photo ID, Social Security card. Offenders who do not have an original or certified copy of their birth certificate will need to start the process of obtaining one immediately. Check with the birth state for their requirements. 

  6. Risk Classification Level: Sex offenders moving to Arizona are required to be assessed to obtain a Risk Classification Level. This will be completed by using a National Criminal History check, documentation from other agencies involved in the offender’s arrest, as well as detention records and community supervision. Any documentation that can be provided may aid in the process.

    Offenders who have documentation that they successfully completed any sex offender treatment programs, or drug/alcohol programs, will need to bring those documents to their appointment. Only documented completion of these programs will be considered for the assessment.
