CNMI Sexual Offender Registry is Online

July 23, 2010

The CNMI Department of Public Safety has a professional looking CNMI sexual offender registry online.  The registry contains a name search, geographical search, community notifications and a resources page.

To find all sexual offenders for an island go to the geographical page and search by zip code.

For the Saipan zip code there were 86 sexual offenders listed, for Rota zip code 2 offenders from Rota and one from Tinian were listed, and for the Tinian zip code there were two names, but they have addresses in Sinapalu, Rota.

I think the DPS is still in the process of updating the list.  If you put in some names under name search, you cannot locate the sexual offender, but he is listed under the general zip code search.  Case in point, Kaipat.

Congratulations to the CNMI DPS for getting this information out to the public. It is especially important because of the recent string of sexual assaults in Saipan.

Thank you Wendy for your help in getting the word out about the lack of a registry in the NMI. I commented a few weeks ago about the lack of a registry and maybe I put the bug in your ear, but you really ran with it and it seems to have made a difference. Thanks to Crime Stoppers, KSPN2 (who ran two stories lately) and the Trib and Variety. And Jason Tarkong who worked to put this together. And finally, the AG's office which acted much quicker than I thought they would. Good Job AG. I don't think they hear this very much. Again, thanks Wendy, and I think our island is a bit safer today.

AOL News (July 21) -- Crave ribs? Bagels and coffee or doughnuts? Seafood, subs or Chinese? So does Congress!

House members spent part of their Members Representational Allowances on these items -- and more -- during the nine-month period between late 2009 and early 2010 covered by the Sunlight Foundation's House Expenditure Reports Database. The info is highly enlightening, revealing, for instance, the popularity of Chantilly Donut's sinkers; what it costs to feed hungry congressional pages; and how lucrative it can be to own a part of the cottage industry of keeping our duly elected representatives fed and well hydrated.

About This Series

According to the documents, Gregorio Sablan, the first-ever House delegate for the Northern Mariana Islands, spent more on food than any other legislator, racking up a tab of $23,457. The second-place legislator, Texas Republican Michael Burgess, spent $17,515.

One company in particular raked in the taxpayer dough: CapitolHost. At least 61 legislators and 20 congressional offices used the catering service, to the tune of about $169,143. But that's only the tip of the iceberg salad, as you'll see below.

Note: Unfortunately, we can't tell you how many burgers your representative ate. The disbursements data only itemizes where the various offices spent their money, not what they bought. (Before going digital, the disbursements did in fact get that specific.) Nor can we tell you what items they bought with the $276,461 in food purchases charged through Citibank, which provides a government credit card service -- the fees all show up as "Citibank," rather than the individual vendor.
