“Megan’s Law” requires law enforcement authorities to make information available to the public regarding registered sex offenders. Under this Federal Law, the Bullhead City Police Department and other law enforcement agencies are required to notify community members when a level 2 and level 3 sex offender moves into their neighborhood.
“Megan’s Law” was named after 7-year-old Megan Kanka who was brutally raped and murdered by a sex offender who lived in her neighborhood. Megan’s parents demanded legislative action and believed that every parent should have the right to know if a sexual predator moves into their neighborhood.
