Sex Offender Information
State law limits which sex offenders police departments are allowed to post online. Some sex offenders who have been convicted of some types of misdemeanors cannot be included on Web-based lists.
The Colorado sex offender registry, available online and from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, includes only those persons convicted of certain acts of unlawful sexual behavior since July 1, 1991, and who are in compliance with sex offender registration laws. Persons should not rely solely on the sex offender registry as a safeguard against perpetrators of sexual assault in their communities. The crime for which a person is convicted may not accurately reflect the level of risk.
Sex offenders have a right under Colorado law to live in any community they wish, with or without a fixed residence, as long as they register accordingly. If someone lacks a fixed residence they must provide a specific location that can be verified. The police department and City government have no authority to control these circumstances, except for alerting the public, maintaining registrations and checking to verify they indeed live where they indicate.
Vigilantism, or the use of this information to harass, threaten, or intimidate the subject of this notification is criminal behavior and will not be tolerated.
