Local Sex Offenders By the Numbers

Arlington has one of the lowest rates of sex offenders per capita in the region, according to local sex offender registries.

Arlington County has 70 resident sex offenders registered with Virginia State Police. When compared to the county’s population (approximately 210,000), that means that Arlington has one sex offender for every 3,000 residents. Compared to a selection of other local jurisdictions, that’s the lowest rate in the area.

  • Arlington Co. — 1 : 3,000
  • Loudoun Co. — 1 : 2,600
  • Fairfax Co. — 1 : 2,500
  • Prince William Co. — 1 : 2,000
  • District of Columbia — 1 : 675

Of Arlington’s 70 registered sex offenders, 48 have South Arlington addresses and 22 have North Arlington addresses.
