Bulletin (PDF 211.34KB)
SVP Notification (PDF 473.31KB)
From Wednesday, April 19th, 2023, through Wednesday, May 3rd, 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 Larimer County, CO from March 2021 to May 2021, when he was transferred to the Colorado Department of Corrections. The individual was transferred back to the Larimer County Jail and was released in April 2023. The individual moved to Fort Collins, CO in April 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.
