Sex Offender Information
The Stevens Point Police Department releases the following information pursuant to Wisconsin State Statute 301.46(2m) which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender's release in order to enhance public safety, awareness, and protection.
Community Notification is a written notification process whereby law enforcement officials can share detailed offender information, provided by the Department of Corrections, with the community.
The overall purpose of Community Notification is to highlight those cases that may pose a significant risk to the community in an effort to provide more detailed information regarding the offender, his/her offense pattern, and specialized rules of supervision, as well as to provide a means to initiate limited or expanded community notification.
Not all sex offenders released in our community will be classified under the Sex Offender Community Notification.
The individuals who appear in this notification have been convicted of a sex offense, have served the required sentence, and have been released from prison. These individuals may or may not be under supervision from the Department of Corrections. Because of their past criminal history, they have been placed in a classification level which raises concerns.
