Minnesota predatory offender laws have been created in order for the public be provided adequate notice and information about predatory offenders who have been or are about to be released from custody. Residents who partner with their local police department are better able to develop constructive plans to educate themselves and their family members for the offender's release.
The public risk posed by a predatory offender is assessed by a committee of experts, after which the offender is given a risk level by the Department of Corrections. Information about the offender, including their risk level, is sent to the local law enforcement agency having primary jurisdiction over the area in which the offender plans to reside. The assigned risk level determines to whom law enforcement may disclose information to.
William Kibble Jr.
Pursuant to Minnesota State Statute, our police department will be releasing information regarding a Level III predatory offender (William Kibble Jr.) who will be moving into our community in the 1000 block of Livingston Avenue. Our police department takes an aggressive role in monitoring predatory offenders and sharing information about offenders with our residents as the law permits. We strongly believe a well-informed public makes for a safer community.
Attached is a “Frequently Asked Questions” flyer about predatory offenders to help you better understand information surrounding predatory offenders and the disclosure rules that apply to their conduct and their choice of residency.
