North Branch Crime

North Branch Police Department


Convicted Sexual and predatory offenders have always been released to live in our communities.  It was not until the passage of the Registration Act that Law Enforcement had an ability to track the movements of these offenders after their initial release.  With the passage of the Community Notification Act, Law Enforcement may now share information about many of these offenders with the public.  Abuse of this information to threaten, harass or intimidate a registered offender is unacceptable, and such acts could be charged as a crime.  Such abuses could potentially end the ability of law enforcement to provide these notifications.  If community notification ends, the only person who wins is the offender.  Many of these offenders derive their power from the opportunity that secrecy provides.

The NORTH BRANCH POLICE DEPARTMENT is releasing this information pursuant to Minnesota statutes 244.052 (http://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/statutes/?id=244.052).  This statute authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sexual or predatory offender's release from prison or a secure treatment facility when North Branch Police Department believes that the release of information will enhance public safety and protection.

The individuals who appear in the notifications has been convicted of criminal sexual conduct or another offense that requires registration with law enforcement pursuant to Minnesota statutes 243.166 (http://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/statutes/?id=243.166) or 243.167 (http://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/statutes/?id=243.167).

These offenders are NOT WANTED at this time and have served the sentence imposed on him/her by the court.  This notification is not intended to increase fear in the community.  The North Branch Police Department believes that an informed public is a safer public.
