The Chicago Police Department developed this web application to provide residents
of the City of Chicago with a tool to assist them accessing registered gun offender information.
It is based upon the CLEAR (Citizen Law Enforcement Analysis and Reporting)
system developed by the Department for use by its police officers.
This web application enables you to search the Chicago Police Department's database
of registered gun offenders. You will be able to see maps, graphs, and tables
of offenders. The database contains the names of registered gun offenders who reside in the City of Chicago and
is updated once per day.
Although every effort is made to keep this list accurate and current, the city
cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Offenders may have moved and failed to notify
the Chicago Police Department as required by ordinance. If any information presented in this web site is known
to be inaccurate, please contact the
Chicago Police Department by mail at Criminal Registration Unit, 3510 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60653.

Gun Offender Registration & Community Notification
Pursuant to the Gun Offender Ordinance, Chapter 8-26,et seq., the Chicago Police Department maintains a list of gun offenders residing within the City of Chicago who are required to register under Chapter 8-26 of the Municipal Code of Chicago. A list of registered gun offenders is being provided on this web site as a public service.
This registry is based upon the City of Chicago's decision to facilitate access to publicly available information about persons convicted of specific gun related offenses. The Chicago Police Department has not considered or assessed the specific risk of re-offense with regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion within this registry, and has made no determination that any individual included within the registry is currently dangerous. Individuals included within this registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction record and City of Chicago ordinance. The main purpose of providing this data on the Internet is to make the information more easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individual.
Anyone who uses information contained in the Gun Offender Database to commit a criminal act against another person is subject to criminal prosecution.
