The Wright County Sheriff's Office is committed to keeping our community safe and informed. Minnesota law provides the opportunity for the Sheriff's Office to provide its community with the kind of information it needs to make good decisions with regard to the safety and welfare of its citizens and their children. The Wright County Sheriff's Office will release information pursuant to Minnesota Statute 244.052 which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a predatory offender's release from prison or a secure treatment facility, when that agency believes that the release of information will enhance public safety.
The predatory offender is required, by law, to register with local authorities, and to keep authorities apprised of any subsequent changes in residence.
The Wright County Sheriff's Office conducts compliance checks on predatory offenders living within our jurisdiction. This enforcement ensures those offenders that are living within our borders, are in compliance. Investigations are conducted on those offenders found to be non-compliant as defined by Minnesota statute, with criminal prosecution pursued through the Wright County Attorney's office.

Predatory Offenders No Longer Residing in Wright County
Under Minnesota Statute 242.052 Subd. 4 (2)(k) we are required to notify the community when an offender who was subject to broad public notification based on their residence in this community is no longer living, working, or frequently found within this jurisdiction. If they are living in another Minnesota community and notification has been made there you can find their location by searching “Public Registrant Search” on the Minnesota Department of Corrections website. Select the “Name” search method under their name.
This in no way should be considered a notice of “all clear” in the community. Sexual offending occurs in almost any community and is more likely than not to involve a perpetrator who is not listed as a registrant or may not live in the immediate community. Additionally, someone who has previously registered in a community most likely has connections to that community so could be expected to return if only to visit or engage in business activity in the community. Nothing replaces awareness as the most critical public safety practice. Be aware of who is involved in the lives of those within your community or your direct family and social network. Speak up if behavior is concerning. Sexual offending is almost always based on family, social, or business interaction rather than simply geographic proximity or registration status.
