Sexually Violent Predators

From Friday, January 29, 2016 through Friday, February 12, 2016, Fort Collins Police Services will have information posted on their website regarding the release of two Sexually Violent Predators (SVP) into the community. The information is being posted pursuant to Colorado Revised Statutes 16-13-901 through 16-13-905 to specifically provide notification of the offender and to generally enhance public safety and protection. The information is being posted in lieu of a community meeting.
The individuals involved in this notification recently moved to the Fort Collins jurisdiction after being released from the Department of Corrections.
This law enforcement agency has no legal authority to direct where a sex offender may live. Unless court restrictions exist, they are constitutionally free to live wherever they choose. Law enforcement may share sex offender information with the community because of the Jacob Wetterling Act of 1994, and in the case of Sexually Violent Predators, law enforcement must actively notify citizens.
Please see the four attached documents containing notifications and community bulletins regarding these individuals. Due to the mature content of the information that will be presented, it is not advisable to allow children to view the notifications. It is strongly encouraged that the appropriate SVP information and public safety information be reviewed with children after the notifications.
Vigilantism, or use of this information to harass, threaten, or intimidate the offender is criminal behavior and will not be tolerated.
