The City may provide public safety alerts and notifications in order to seek public assistance, provide public safety information, or as part of a legal notification requirement. Please visit the links below to view any current alerts or notifications. Due to the infrequency of these notifications, information may not exist.
Will I be informed when this offender moves out of my neighborhood?
No. The notification about predatory offenders is basic safety information to help create awareness of an offender moving into your neighborhood. There are many predatory offenders in this state as well as other states. It would serve no purpose to have people relax or not follow safety measures because the one offender they knew about moved from the neighborhood.
How will this information make a difference with this or any other predatory offender?
Predatory offenders gain power from operating in a mode of secrecy. Notifying the community of an offender takes away their hidden agenda by making neighbors aware of their identity and where they live. Any power that the community takes back from the offender helps to reduce opportunities for victimization. Brooklyn Center appreciates your willingness to be involved in community education and the notification process to help empower you and your family to be safe.
Who do I call if I suspect the offender is doing something they shouldn’t?
Call 911 any time you think the offender has committed a crime as you would with any criminal activity. Any other activity of the offender that might be a violation of probation or a condition of release that you are unsure of can be answered by the Probation Office at the number supplied to you on the offender fact sheet.
Who do I call for victim services involving a sexual assault?
If you or someone you know has been a victim of a sexual assault, please call the Minnesota Center for Crime Victim Services at 651-201-7300, Option 1 for help and advice. This agency provides support and service to the community and is staffed by persons trained and experienced in helping people deal with victims of sexual assault. If you have been a victim and did not report the crime, please take the opportunity to contact the Brooklyn Center Police Department. Your report may assist in apprehending a criminal before they can commit another offense.
