Megan’s Laws are named after seven-year-old Megan Kanka, who was kidnapped, sexually assaulted, and murdered by a man who had two prior convictions for sexual offenses. The murderer had moved in across the street from Megan’s family, which was unaware of his past history.
Pennsylvania lawmakers have determined that citizens’ safety is enhanced when requiring certain sex offenders to register and make this information available to the public.
The Upper Darby Police Department stores information in regards to Megan’s Law offenders, and notifies the public of their presence when required to do so.
Pursuant to the provisions of Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law, 42 Pa.C.S. § 9791 et seq., the State Police has established a web page to provide timely information to the public on registered sex offenders who reside, attend school, are employed/carry on a vocation, within the Commonwealth.
