Prior to completing a sexual offender registration, update, or verification on the PA SORT application,the registering official must clickon the "Appearance Dates" tab. Once on the tab, the user will see "Step 1 Create Report." After clicking on step 1, the user will be able to view and print the registration form. The user then see, "Step 2 Verify Offender Appearance" for existing offenders or "Step 2 Submit new Offender" for new registrants. The user must click step 2. The registering official is now done. (They will be reminded to proceed to a LiveScan device for new registrants.)
We've seen a significant number of sexual offenders processed using the PA SORT apllication where the registering officials are not clicking step 2. It is vitally important registering officials click step 2; otherwise, the sexual offender is not credited with ab appearance.
Thank You for your assistance.
