Sex Offender Registry
To register as Sex Offender you need to fill out the Sex Offender Registration Form when you come in to register. You can only register if you have already been classified by the Sex Offender Registry Board. Level 2 and 3 Offenders living in Westfield must register at the Westfield Police Department. Level 1 Sex Offenders must register with the Sex Offender Registry Board directly. All levels re-register yearly in their birth month. If someone registers as Homeless they need to register with our department monthly.
