Yakama Nation Enacts Sex Offender Registration Requirements

The Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation have passed a resolution requiring any sex offender who lives or works on the Yakama Indian Reservation to register with the Nation’s law enforcement agencies. The Yakama Nation is the first government in the Yakima Valley of Washington State to require sex offenders to not only register if they live on the reservation, but also if they live elsewhere but are employed on the reservation.

The registration requirement applies to all persons whether Native or non-Native, and carries penalties of up to one year in jail and a $5,000 fine for non-compliance.
