Assembly Bill
No. 932


Introduced by Assembly Member Achadjian

February 22, 2013


An act to amend Section 290.47 of the Penal Code, relating to sex offenders.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 932, as introduced, Achadjian. Sex offenders: registration.
Existing law requires the registration of sex offenders and requires the Department of Justice to make available to the public via an Internet Web site certain information relating to certain registered sex offenders, including the address at which the person resides, as specified. Existing law requires the department to record the address at which a registered sex offender resides with a unique identifier.
This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to the provision requiring the department to record that address with a unique identifier.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 290.47 of the Penal Code is amended to read:

290.47.
 The Department of Justice shall record the address at which a registered sex offender resides with a unique identifier for the that address. The information for this identifier shall be captured pursuant to Section 290.015 and the identifier shall consist of a description of the nature of the dwelling, with the choices of a single family residence, an apartment/condominium, a motel/hotel, or a licensed facility. Each address and its association with any specific registered sex offender shall be stored by the department in the same database as the registration data recorded pursuant to Section 290.015. The department shall make that information available to the State Department of Social Services or any other state agency when the agency needs the information for law enforcement purposes relating to investigative responsibilities relative to sex offenders. This section shall become operative on January 1, 2012.
