At least one state Illinois reclassifies all registrants moving in the state into the highest possible tier Sexual Predator , regardless of the original tier of the person, leading to a lifetime registration requirement and being publicly labelled as a "Sexual Predator". The use of the sex offender registry information to harass, endanger, intimidate, threaten or in any way seek retribution on an offender through illegal channels is prohibited. Furthermore the database is compiled based, in part, upon information provided by the convicted offender and such information is not independently verified by MDPS. In some instances, the Registry is unable to independently confirm the accuracy of the information compiled and provided. In some states non-sexual offenses such as unlawful imprisonment may require sex offender registration. They can click "View Details" and pull up a page with more information, including scars and tattoos, and which crimes they were convicted of committing. Other countries do not make sex offender information public, unless the risk assessment has been conducted and the offender has been determined to pose a high risk of re-offending. Notwithstanding and in part because of the local nature of registration, the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act "SORNA" was passed in in order to strengthen the national network of registration and notification programs and to establish minimum standards for such systems. While these disparities in level of public disclosure among different states might cause unexpected problems after registration, they have also caused some registrants to move into locations where public disclosure of lower level offenders is not permitted, in order to avoid public persecution and other adverse effects of public disclosure they were experiencing in their original location. Persons concerned with regard to information about them should contact the custodian of the record, which typically is the local law enforcement agency, state agency, or other governmental entity, that collects and maintains the information. Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Montana all have publicly accessible registries for those convicted of murder.
