Tennessee Drug Offender Registry
The Drug Offender Registry was originally titled the “Methamphetamine Registry” when created in 2005 by the Tennessee General Assembly and contained information concerning persons convicted of certain methamphetamine-related crimes. In 2014, the “Methamphetamine Registry” was expanded into the “Drug Offender Registry” and qualifying convictions increased to include most drug offenses. Also in 2014, the length of time an offender remained on the Registry was expanded from seven years to ten years.
Information contained on the Registry is provided to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation by the appropriate clerk in each county. The Registry contains such information as: the name of the offender; the offender’s date of birth; the county of conviction; the offenses for which the person was convicted; and the date of conviction.
The information contained in the registry is provided to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation by the appropriate clerk in each county. The TBI does not independently verify the convictions, and cannot guarantee their accuracy. Therefore, this information should be regarded as a resource suggesting the need for further inquiry.
