Beaufort County Sex Offender Registry (SORT)

According to state statute (Statute 23-3-400), the sheriff of each county is responsible for registering all sex offenders convicted of offenses that warrant registration and for maintaining a file on each offender to include a fingerprint card, current rap sheet, registration form, and photograph of the offender. When a convicted sex offender fails to register with Beaufort County Sheriff's Office, the appropriate action is taken to affect the registration (Statute 23-3-450).

The sex offender management application program previously used by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) was through a vendor, OffenderWatch, which is no longer available. However, SLED has decided to now provide this service for South Carolina via a program they have developed called SORT.

The NEW state developed Sex Offender Registry (SORT) program is now accessible to the public.
