The Offender Registry Enforcement (ORE) Unit is part of the Operations Division. The ORE Unit has been in operation since 2009. It employs one detective. The Unit is augmented by two Patrol Deputies. The unit ensures all Cleveland County Sex and Violent Offender Registrants are registered and in compliance with all State and Federal Laws. The Oklahoma Department of Corrections (DOC) is responsible for registering and monitoring all offenders who are required to register. The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) only registers offenders that are located in unincorporated areas within Cleveland County. Any municipality having a police department must register and monitor registrants residing in their city.
The ORE Unit registers and maintains individual files on all CCSO Registrants. The files include updated photographs, addresses, phone numbers, job information, vehicle data and fingerprints. DNA samples are taken by DOC. Upon receiving information that a CCSO Registrant is not in compliance an investigation is initiated. The ORE Unit also does regular unannounced compliance checks. If there are any violations of the law criminal charges are filed.
Offender Registration is at the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office headquarters, 111 N. Peters Ave., Suite 600, Norman, OK 73069.
Address verifications can be completed at anytime on Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
New registrants, address changes etc. will need to be scheduled ahead of time with the detective.
