There have been improvements in the administration of Megan's Law by the Pennsylvania State Police, but major deficiencies remain, such as Web postings of incomplete and inaccurate information about the state's more than 8,000 sex offenders, according to findings in a special performance audit released yesterday by state Auditor General Jack Wagner.
Improvements include better communication with other law enforcement agencies, more listings on the state's Megan's Law Web site and an increase of state police assigned to the Megan's Law Section from three to seven, according to the audit.
