Convicted Sex Offenders Notification

EFFECTIVE DATE: September 2003

The purpose of this policy is to protect the public by enhancing access to information concerning Sex-Offenders by following the guidelines of the “Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act” and the “Criminal History Record Information Act”.

A Registered Sex Offender means an individual convicted of Gross Sexual Assault if the victim had not in fact attained 16 years of age at the time of the crime. This person is required to register their address with the Department of Public Safety, State Bureau of Identification.

A Sex Offender means a person convicted of a Sexual Assault. This person, unless specified above, does not have to register.

Pursuant to the “Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act”, Title 34- sec. 1100 1- 11144 M.R. S.A. , a sex offender required to register shall register that person’s current address with the Department of Public Safety, State Bureau of Identification for a period of fifteen (15) years from the date of:

Sentencing if no period of institutional confinement is to be served; or discharge or conditional release from a state correctional facility, a state mental health institute or a county jail.

It also allows a Law Enforcement Agency to release certain information about a Registered Sex Offender.

Pursuant to the “Criminal History Record Information Act”, Title 16, chapter 3, subchapter VIII M.R. S.A. which governs dissemination of criminal history record information, conviction data may be disseminated to any person for any purpose. More information is allowed to be released about a Registered Sex Offender, however.

The Chief of Police and/or department designee shall carefully determine which cases need notification by analyzing the crime convicted of, other criminal history, prison record, pre-sentence investigations and potential to re-offend. From that the Chief of Police and/or designee will determine which notification option(s) would be most appropriate. This notification shall be made by whatever means authorized by Statute and Chief of Police. The notification options include, but are not limited to, written press release to the mass media (newspaper, radio and television stations, etc), door to door notification, distribution of flyers and/or neighborhood meetings by the Police.

The Chief of Police and/or designee shall insure that an effort has been made to notify the victim(s) and offender before any information is released. This shall not apply to a person who makes an inquiry where permissible information can be released. In all cases where information is released, the Chief of Police shall be the person to order the release of the information.

The Chief of Police shall monitor and insure the department and it’s officers abide by this policy. The Chief of Police and/or designee shall monitor any changes in State of Maine and/or United States laws regarding release of criminal conviction data.

Any Dexter Police Department law enforcement officer who has probable cause to believe that an Adult Registered Sex Offender is violating any State of Maine or United States laws including his/her requirement to register a current or new address shall notify the Chief of Police and/or department designee, the Department of Public Safety, State Bureau of Identification and/or any other appropriate agency responsible for keeping such records.

Also, Registered Sex Offender information lawfully obtained by the Dexter. Police Department shall be kept on file at the Dexter Police Department. This information shall be made available to a Law Enforcement Officer and, as permitted, the public upon inquiry. This information is kept in a book labeled Registered Sex Offenders and is kept up to date as information is received.
