Since July 1, 1991, predatory offenders in Minnesota have been required to register their addresses with local law enforcement agencies, who then forward the information to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which maintains a database that can be used by the law enforcement agencies, the DOC states on its website.
Risk levels are assigned to predatory offenders when they are released from prison. The level is based on their prior offense history, the seriousness of their crime and more. There are three levels of predatory offenders -- 1, 2, 3 -- and a Level 3 predatory offender is considered by the DOC most likely to reoffend.
