Sex offenders who are residing, employed or attending school in the territory and need to register or update their information must do so telephonically or via email. Offenders must understand that failure to comply with these obligations will subject them to prosecution for failure to register.

To register or update information, please contact Shani Pinney, Territorial Sex Offender Registry Program manager: shani.pinney@doj.vi.gov or 774-5666 ext. 10191/ 714-9645 or or Inais Borque, Territorial Sex Offender Registry coordinator at inais.borque@doj.vi.gov or 773-0295 ext. 20250.

This limited service will continue at the VI Department of Justice Sex Offender Registry until further notice.
