Stay Safe & Informed
The Anoka 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 information it needs to make good decisions with regard to the safety and welfare of its citizens and their children. The Anoka 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 Anoka County Sheriff's Office conducts compliance checks on predatory offenders living within our jurisdictions. 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 Anoka County Attorney's office.
