On November 24, 2004, Governor Edward Rendell signed into law Senate Bill No. 92, which made significant changes to Megan’s Law. Most notably, information on all registered sex offenders now will be available to the public through the Internet. Additionally, out-of-state offenders will be subject not only to the same registration and notification provisions of their state of conviction in Pennsylvania but will be subject to the registration and notification requirements of Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) are committed to protecting the public and ensuring that the rights of victims are carefully observed. HSI administers the Victim Notification Program which allows eligible victims and witnesses to obtain reliable and timely information regarding a criminal alien’s release from custody. However, victims and witnesses are required to register with HSI and ICE in order to receive notification of criminal notification of criminal alien’s release.
