The Cloquet Police Department has in place a process to identify and monitor registered sex offenders living within the city. A standardized notification process is followed when offenders are being released back into our community. Under Minnesota State Statute, the police department is required to make community notifications when certain types of offenders are released into the community. Sex offenders are divided into three categories, ranging from the least likely to re-offend, level one, to a level three which is an offender most likely to re-offend.
There continues to be several level one and two offenders in Cloquet at this time and detectives are following up on these people throughout the year. These people are required to register with our department to ensure updated information is collected such as, vehicle information, current photos, DNA samples are provided by the offender if requested by the BCA.
