You can check this handy map from the MT DOJ to see who's living in your neighborhood. Knowing your surroundings is important and you, BY LAW, deserve to know such information.

This search tool is incredibly easy to use. You can do a broad search for an entire town, county or zip code. You can also check individual last names of sexual and violent offenders for their most recent address.

According to the Montana Department of Justice:

Created by the Montana Department of Justice in 1989, the Sexual or Violent Offender Registry is a valuable resource for Montanans to protect their families against sexual or violent offenders.

As of this typing, there are approximately 175 registered offenders on the list in the Bozeman area.

Twice now in Bozeman I've lived practically next door to someone convicted of "Federal Receipt And Possession Of Child Pornography". 

Do yourself a favor and inform yourself about YOUR neighborhood.

(This is what the Bozeman map actually looks like as of August 2018.)
