Sexual Offenders Registration


Due to the current State of Emergency as a result of COVID-19, the Fresno Police Department has modified the registration process to stay consistent with State and local public health guidelines regarding physical distancing. If you reside within the City of Fresno, you can still report registering at 110 “M” Street, Fresno, CA 93721 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays: 09:00 am -12:00 pm. The registration office has established procedures during this time to allow for physical distancing and request that individuals maintain a minimum of 6 feet from other people. The registration process is currently taking place outside of the registration office to allow for greater physical distancing. The registration officers are visually confirming the registrant’s identity and verbally confirming the registrant’s current information is correct and up to date (address, phone number, vehicle information, etc.) prior to updating the person’s registration. Pursuant to Executive Order N-63-20 signed by Governor Gavin Newsome on May, 7th 2020, these procedures will be in place for a minimum of 60 days from that date. If you are sick, believe that you possibly have COVID-19, or have medical conditions or other concerns, please contact the PC 290 Unit at (559) 600-8068 or email the PC Unit at PC290Unit@fresno.gov so other arrangements can be made to update your registration without requiring registrants to physically respond to the registration office.
