This policy analysis reviews and evaluates the Jacob Wetterling Crimes against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act (Wetterling Act), and subsequent amendments. The analysis presents a historic overview of sex offender policies over the past 80 years and how sex offenders have been viewed and treated by our society. It furthermore discusses the phenomenon of current sex offender policies, and the accelerated implementation of those policies, which took place in the United States from the 1990s to current day. The intended and unintended effects of sex offender registries and notification policies are presented, pros and cons are discussed, and suggestions for an improvement of the current sex offender policies are made.
