Sexually Violent Predator Community Notification Bulletin (October 7, 2019)
Russell Scott Ehrlich
PLEASE NOTE: 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.
The Longmont Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Colorado Revised Statutes 16-13-901 through 16-13905, which authorized law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release when the offender has been determined to be a sexually violent predator (SVP) and is subject to community notification. The purpose of this notification is to enhance public safety and protection. Vigilantism, or use of this information to harass, threaten, or intimidate any of the following people is criminal behavior and will not be tolerated: the offender, the offender’s significant others, and the community notification team. Further dissemination of this bulletin by citizens is discouraged. Additional community members needing information should be referred to Longmont Police at 303-651-8524.
The individual subject of this notification has been convicted of a sex offense that requires law enforcement registration. Further, they have been determined to present a high potential to re-offend and are therefore subject to community notification regarding their residence in this community. 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. Sex offenders have always lived in our communities, but there were not required to notify law enforcement of their residence until registration laws were implemented pursuant to the Jacob Wetterling Act in 1994. Law enforcement may now share that information with members of their communities, and in the case of sexually violence predators (SVP) who are subject to community notification, law enforcement must actively notify citizens.
