The Minnesota Department of Corrections notified the Brainerd Police Department that Tyler Steven Jay, a Level 3 predatory offender, will be residing in Brainerd at the end of the month.
A Level 3 predatory offender is the highest risk level who is most likely to reoffend. Due to Jay previously residing in the city of Brainerd, a community notification meeting about Bryant is not planned.
Jay engaged in separate incidents of sexual contact against known and unknown male children and used his relationship of trust to exploit unmonitored access with the known victims. He also used his position of employment to exploit unmonitored access with the unknown victims. With all the victims, he used their confusion and naivete in his efforts to maintain control.
Public Fact Notification Sheets will be available at the Brainerd Police Department and that same information will be posted on the Brainerd Police Department Facebook Page .
The Brainerd Police Department reminded residents Jay is not wanted by police at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear in the community, but to keep the public informed, the police department said in a news release
Police also ask that the public report criminal activity by this offender or any other individual by calling 911.
