ATTENTION

In an effort to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, effective Monday, March 23, 2020, the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Compliance Team will be changing the Sex Offender Registration procedures.

Sex offenders must still register and submit any updates or changes. Homeless offenders must check in every 90 days.

Until further notice, in-person appointments are not needed for:

  • New (initial) sex offender registrations. Offenders registering for the first time, i.e., newly convicted, new to the state of Arizona, must call the Sex Offender Compliance Team.
  • Address changes. Instead, address changes may be submitted by completing the “Sex Offender Registration” AND the “Notice of Address or Name Change Requirements Per Arizona Revised Statutes” forms.

Sex Offender Registration forms: The “Sex Offender Registration” along with “Notice of Address or Name Change Requirements Per Arizona Revised Statutes” forms are available in the front lobby of the YCSO main office located at 141 S. Third Avenue, Yuma, AZ. The forms (stapled together) should be filled out completely, dated and signed. Lastly, place completed forms in the box marked “Sex Offender Forms”, also located in the front lobby.

You can also download the forms and mail them in. Click links below to download the forms:

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.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
9:00 AM–12:00 PM; and 1:00–3:00 PM

Deputy Jacob Meyer (928) 783-4427, Ext. 3022

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.
