Sexually Violent Predator Information

Released on Sunday, February 12, 2023


Police Post Sexually Violent Predator Information on Website

From Sunday, February 12th, 2023, through Sunday, February 26th, 2023, Fort
Collins Police Services will have information posted on their website regarding
the relocation of a Sexually Violent Predator (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 individual involved in this notification was registered as a Sex Offender in
Fort Collins, CO from January 2020 to November 2022, when he moved to the
City of Johnstown, CO. The individual moved back to Fort Collins in February
2023, and now resides in Fort Collins.

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.

Due to the mature content of the information that will be presented, it is not
advisable to allow children to view the notification. It is strongly encouraged that
the appropriate SVP information and public safety information be reviewed with
children after the notification.

Vigilantism, or use of this information to harass, threaten, or intimidate the
offender is criminal behavior and will not be tolerated.
