WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The state's public offender registry will no longer include the addresses of sex offenders' employers, but that information can still be obtained from other sources.

The home addresses of people convicted of sex crimes, violent crimes and serious drug offenses will remain on the offender registry, but their work addresses won't be listed as of July 1. The change is a result of employers' concerns and a compromise approved during the latest legislative session.

The Wichita Eagle reports that offenders' work addresses, however, can be found by going to the local sheriff's office and asking for the address, or by signing up for an electronic message system that will send an e-mail saying that an offender has taken up residence or employment in your neighborhood.
