Level 3 Sex Offender Notification

Information regarding Level 3 sex offenders can be found at the Minnesota Department of Corrections and information regarding Level 2 offenders is available at the St. Cloud Police Department.

Community Notification of Sexual Offenders

In 1996 the Minnesota Legislature passed the Community Notification Law (Minnesota Statutes 244.052) that permitted the release of information about certain offenders in Minnesota. The intent of the legislature was as follows: "If members of the public are provided adequate notice and information about an offender’s release, the community can develop constructive plans to prepare themselves."

In 2000 the "Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act" (section 1601 of Public Law 106-386) required institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained.  It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries a vocation, or is a student.
