The sheriff then enters the information into the Registry Database. This information is available on a county-wide basis at the Sheriff's Office. The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation takes certain information submitted by the sheriff in all 100 counties in the state and makes it available to the public via the Sex Offender Registry website.
