The city, state, and federal governments, as well as some private websites, can provide neighbors with access to information about registered offenders that live in the neighborhood. These resources have been described on a new page on our website, Information About Registered Offenders in the Community.
Specifically, if a Level III convicted sex offender moves into the Kingfield neighborhood, Minnesota law requires community notification. As part of the notification process, the Minneapolis Police Department distributes flyers to persons living within a several block radius of Level III Sex Offenders, and provides copies to the neighborhood association. If you would like to receive copies of notification flyers, please contact Cheryl@Kingfield.org.
It is important to remember that these persons are not wanted by the police at this time and have served the sentence imposed on them by the court. These notifications are not intended to increase fear in the community. It is the belief of law enforcement that an informed public is a safer public. Abuse of this information to threaten, harass, or intimidate registered offenders may be a crime, and will not be tolerated. Such abuses could potentially end the ability of law enforcement to do these notifications.
