The State of Rhode Island Parole Board and Sex Offender Community Notification Unit provides a searchable online database of Level 2 and Level 3 sex offenders, which are "moderate risk" offender and "high risk" offenders, searchable by city and town, zip code, or offender level.  Not all towns in the state have registered sex offenders in the database.  

In addition, categories include "whereabouts unknown", "moved out of state", "incarcerated out of state", "deported", and "deceased."

Below are the sex offenders registered on the site as of November 2013, ranked accoring to offenders per capita in each community -- which can change daily.  The population numbers are taken from Rhode Island DLT 2011 estimates.
