Sex Offender Registration Changes


Effective immediately, those who are required to register in Lawrence County as a sex offender must do so by appointment.  To schedule an appointment you will need to call Corporal McCoy at 417-466-2131 ext. 4253.

An appointment will be made for you to arrive at the jail for registration/updates in order to remain compliant under Missouri law.

This change is to increase efficiency and reduce wait times for offenders who may come to the jail on a walk-in basis and have to wait several minutes and sometimes an hour or more because of traffic in the jail.

A letter will be mailed to all those registered explaining the process.  We know not everyone will get this letter prior to your next registration date so please be patient as we make this change.

Again, please contact Corporal McCoy at 417-466-2131 ext. 4253 to schedule an appointment.
