PIERRE, South Dakota — The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed South Dakota's compliance with a national sex offender registration act.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says the state's Sex Offender Registry continues to comply with the federal Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

South Dakota currently has 3,300 registered sex offenders living in the state.

Jackely says the state has a compliance rate of 98.9 percent and has had only 36 instances of non-compliance.

South Dakota was the originally the fourth registry in the nation to be certified.

South Dakota finished its renewal process in May. The Department of Justice reaffirmed the state's compliance status this week.
