There are 3 levels of notification when a sex offender is released into the community.
- Which level the offender is assigned to is not determined by the Department of Corrections, but is determined by local law enforcement.
- Level 1: Information is released to law enforcement only
- Level 2: Information is released to both law enforcement and “target groups” as appropriate. For example, if the victim was children in day care, day care organizations would likely be notified.
- Level 3: Information is released to law enforcement and the community at large through community meetings, media releases, etc. The victim is not identified. Usually only for offenders that are repeat offenders, or whose crime was “especially heinous”.
Victims and their families can request that the offender has no contact with them or their family as a part of their parole. This request should be put in writing, and mailed to:
206 East Olin Ave, Madison, WI 53713
The offender is not allowed to go into their place of business, even if it is a public place. If they enter a public place where their victim/family is present, the onus is on offender to leave the premises immediately.
