Each week, the Missourian highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives. For a complete list of Show Me the Records, go to

The records: The Missouri State Highway Patrol Sex Offender Registry

Why you’d want them: This will help you stay informed about the potential sex offenders living in your area. Additionally, the Missouri State Highway Patrol requests help in finding information concerning absconders who have a non-compliant status or don't have a home address. 

Where to get them: You can find this list on the Missouri State Highway patrol website, Below the logo at the top of the page, click "sex offender registry." This will take you to a disclaimer. Clicking "I agree" will take you to the registry.

At the top of the page are absconders the police have requested help with. At the bottom of the page, there is a button that reads "View Entire Missouri Sex Offender Registry" if you would like to see the whole list.

How much it will cost: The information is free.

Should also make note that most of these registries are not complete as is There are individuals on the lists that were caught peeing in public or were 18 and with their HS girlfriend. Missouri as most of the country do not have different classifications. A peeing in public offender is treated and goes through same sessions as a grandpa that sexually molested his granddaughter.
