MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Department of Corrections says Wisconsin's sex offender registry website is now searchable by address.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports reports people can now enter a specific address and search for registered offenders who live within a three-mile radius. People have been able to search the registry only by name or zip code since 2001.
The revamped website also includes a community notification system, which allows people to get email alerts when a registered sex offender provides a home address that's near an address of interest.

The site allows users to view a current booking photo and vehicle information for the offender.
