On September 10, 1999, a new law pertaining to the Sex Offender Registry and Community Notification Act became effective in Massachusetts. The new law revamped the old Sex Offender Registry and Community Notification Act and made several significant changes. The Whitman Police Department now allows residents to obtain specific information regarding the Massachusetts Sex Offender's Registry.
As of December 31, 2016, the Town of Whitman has three Registered Level Three Sex Offenders and 14 Registered Level Two Sex Offenders either residing or employed in Whitman. Please click on the following links to view their information:
Obtaining Information About Sex Offenders in Your Community
Any member of the public who is at least 18 years of age or older may request sex offender information. The information will be provided to any person who is seeking the information for his/her own protection or for the protection of a child under the age of 18 or for the protection of another person whom the requesting person has responsibility, care, or custody.
If you are a resident of Whitman and wish to obtain information about level three offenders, you can click on the above information for a copy of the community notification. For level two offenders, you must submit a Sex Offender Request form at the police station. Residents should make an appointment with Officer Kevin Harrington or Lieutenant Daniel Connolly.
You may also request sex offender information through the Sex Offender Registry Board directly.
