Minnesota’s Predatory Offender Registry was established on August 1, 1991.
Since then, the BCA’s POR unit has maintained the state's central database of
information on predatory offenders.
Those who are required to register must provide information about their primary
and secondary addresses, employment, and vehicles they own or operate. They are
also required to return periodic verification forms to ensure all information
on file with the BCA remains up to date. When predatory offenders fail to
report changes in the required information or if they fail to return
verification forms they are classified as “non-compliant.”
Most registration information is classified as private; however, pursuant
M.S. § 243.166, Subd. 7a.
, the BCA is authorized to make
registration information available to the public when a registrant who is over
the age of 16 has failed to provide information regarding his/her primary or
secondary address and has been non-complaint for thirty days or longer. The BCA
is limited by statute to release only enough information about non-complaint
registrants to allow the public to assist in locating them.
The public is strongly encouraged to notify the
Minnesota Predatory Offender Unit
or a local law enforcement agency of
any information concerning the whereabouts of non-compliant registrants.
