Sex Offender Registry
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 currently used by South Carolina was developed by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and is called SORT.
The Sex Offender Registry (SORT) program is accessible to the public.
