The laws center on sex offenders registering in person each year at the Batavia Police Department. They must do so for a required 10-year registration period, unless they are separately required to register for life.
Offenders are prohibited from living within 500 feet of a school, daycare center, youth center or other facility that caters to children younger than 18 years old.
Sex Offenders in Your Neighborhood
A search of the Illinois Sex Offender Registry lists 12 registered sex offenders living in the City of Batavia.
Half of the offenders are labeled sexual predators. This term refers to anyone convicted after July 1, 1999 of certain violations in the Criminal Code of 1961. Sexual predators are required to register for their entire lives, according to the Illinois Sex Offender Information website.
How The Map Works
The map is interactive, meaning you can zoom in, zoom out, or move it around to see all the plotted points.
Moving your cursor over one of the markers will give you the name of the sex offender and his address. Double clicking on the marker will give you more information about the specific charge and a picture of the offender.
The yellow pins represent sex offenders who are not listed as sexual predators. The six red pins are those who are labeled as sexual predators in the registry.
