California's Megan's Law provides the public with certain information on the whereabouts of sex offenders so that members of our local communities may protect themselves and their children. The law is not intended to punish the offender and specifically prohibits using the information to harass or commit any crime against the offender. It recognizes that public safety is best served when registered sex offenders are not concealing their location to avoid harassment.
The Burlingame Police Department is dedicated to giving the residents the most up to date information possible about Sexual Offenders in the community. The department, in accordance with State and Federal laws, wishes to provide the citizens with the information necessary to protect themselves and their families from danger. Not every registered sex offender will appear on the Internet web site. Some registered sex offenders are excluded from public disclosure by law.
