The Tohono O’odham Nation has placed a high priority on keeping its communities and people safe. The Nation was one of the first tribes to establish a sex offender registry. In May of 2000, the Tohono O’odham Legislative Council passed Ordinance 2000-02, requiring registration of convicted sexual offenders who enter or remain within the Tohono O’odham Nation. The Tohono O'odham Nation reserves the right to modify or amend the Laws of the land as necessary.
On March 24, 2011, The Tohono O’odham Nation Legislative Council enacted Title 7, Chapter 3, Sex Offender Registration and Notification Law repealing Ordinance 2000-02. In accordance with Title 7, Chapter 3 of the Tohono O’odham Nation Criminal Code, Sex Offenders are required to register or update their existing records with the Tohono O’odham Nation Police Department immediately if currently residing here or merely entering the lands and within 24 hours of any other reason for being within our jurisdiction. Offenders who are required to register shall also show up in person every 90 days for the remainder of their life.
If NO TIER is displayed, that means they are no longer allowed within the jurisdiction until they complete an updated registration. There is a clean record provision for juvenile’s cases reducing their registration period to 20 years. If clean record is afforded, the offender will be removed from the registration only after the offender provides certified legal proof of meeting the requirements.
THE LAW OF THE NATION IS RETROACTIVELY APPLIED TO ALL SEX OFFENSE CONVICTIONS from any qualifying jurisdiction. This law also applies to any sex offender that enters the jurisdiction and does not require they live within the jurisdiction like the State of AZ. Entering the jurisdiction or passing through constitutes mandatory registration under section 3302.
Sex Offenders must register immediately with the Tohono O’odham Police Department (TOPD). Failure to register or failure to keep information current and correct is a violation that carries a penalty of up to one year confinement in the Tohono O’odham Detention Center. There could be additional penalties in federal court or state court for failure to register depending on the situation.
With the passage of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Law, it provides stringent requirements for registration of sexual offenders and notification to the public of the places they intend to or actually reside, work (whether compensated or not), volunteer, attend college or school or any vocation, and travel. The requirements apply to anyone convicted of covered sexual offenses in any court of conviction, including certain foreign countries and military offenses. General offenses like Assault or Child Abuse may also register if there are elements of offending behavior within the commission of the offense.
The Nation's Law requires juvenile registration of certain categories of ADJUDICATED DELINQUENT JUVENILES of SERIOUS RAPE LIKE sexual offenses and the juvenile was age 14 OR OLDER AT THE COMMISSION OF THE OFFENSE; or those JUVENILES CONVICTED AS ADULTS of any covered sexual offense. For clarification of what types of offenses require registration, contact the TOPD at the number below. Juvenile registration information is posted as well on our public website.
Any sexual offender who has not yet registered or who has not kept their registration information correct and current must do so IMMEDIATELY. TOPD will pursue arrest warrants for all offenders who have not registered or brought their registration current. Failure to comply with the Nations’ Law is also a serious violation of federal law that can result in federal incarceration for up to ten years.
Any person who uses information obtained by a sex offender registry to harm, harass, annoy, or commit criminal violations against a registrant will be subject to criminal and/or civil penalties. Any such activity should be immediately reported to the local police department.
