The Delta Police Department is hosting a community meeting Thursday, Aug. 1, at 7 p.m. in the municipal courtroom at Delta City Hall, 360 Main Street.
Pursuant to state statute, the meeting is being held to provide information about the release of a sexually violent predator into the community.
Educational information regarding sexual offending will also be presented by a team of professionals involved in the management of sex offenders in our community. The goal of the meeting is to enhance public safety and protection. Vigilantism or use of the information to harass, threaten or intimidate the offender or his family is prohibited.
The individual subject of the notification has been convicted of a sex offense that requires law enforcement registration. Further, they have been determined to present a high potential to re-offend and are therefore subject to community notification regarding their residence in this community.
Due to the mature content of the information that will be presented, it is not advisable to bring children to the meeting. It is strongly encouraged that the appropriate SVP information and public safety information presented be reviewed with children after the meeting. Children under 15 unaccompanied by an adult will not be permitted to attend the meeting.blog comments powered by Disqus
