  • Community Meeting Re: Sexually Violent Predator


    When: August 28, 2013 6:00: PM - 7:00 PM

    Where: City of Golden Council Chambers, 911 10th St., Golden, CO

    Description: This meeting is being held to provide information concerning the release of a Sexually Violent Predator (SVP) into this community. Educational information regarding sexual offending will be presented by a team of professionals. The goal is to enhance public safety and protection.

    The SVP is registered with the Golden Police Department but does not have a fixed address, which is why this is a city-wide notification. The SVP has been determined to present a high potential to re-offend and is therefore subject to community notification regarding his residence in this community. Vigilantism, harassment, threats or intimidation will not be tolerated against the offender, his significant others or the community notification team.

    Law enforcement agencies have no legal authority to direct where sex offenders live and they are constitutionally free to live where they choose. However, in the case of SVPs, law enforcement must actively notify citizens.
    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 be review with children after the meeting.

    Children under 15 unaccompanied by an adult will not be permitted to attend.

    Questions, please call Golden Police Department at 303-384-8045

    The meeting will be broadcasted live on local cable Channel 8 and live on the website: www.cityofgolden.net
