Level III Sex Offenders

AUTHORIZING OFFICER: Det. Lt. Christopher Brooks

The Woonsocket Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to R.I. Gen. Law 11-37.1-1et seq., which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender's release from prison when the Parole Board determines that the release of information will enhance public safety and protection. The individual(s) who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense or other offense that requires registration with the law enforcement agency, which has jurisdiction over their residence.

This offender(s) has served the sentence imposed by the courts and will be living in the location below. This offender(s) is not wanted by the police at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear. It is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.

The Woonsocket Police Department has no legal authority to direct where an offender(s) may or may not live. Unless court ordered restrictions exist, an offender(s) is constitutionally free to live wherever the offender(s) chooses. Further, their previous criminal history places them in a classification level, which reflects only the potential to re-offend.

Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but it was not until passage of the Sexual Offender Registration and Community Notification Act that law enforcement even knew where they were living. In many cases, law enforcement is now able to share information with you. Abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered offenders will not be tolerated and may be a crime. Further, such abuse could potentially end law enforcement's ability to do community notifications. We believe that if community notification ends because of community harassment the only person who wins is the sex offender, since sex offenders derive their power through secrecy.

The Woonsocket Police Department is available to help you by providing you with useful information on personal safety. The Woonsocket Police Department may be reached at (401) 766-1212. If you have information regarding current criminal activity of this or any other offender, please call.

This notice is intended to provide you with information concerning this offender(s). The Sexual Offender Registration and Community Notification Act does not apply to all persons who are sexual offenders, but as a result of that Act and registration laws, law enforcement is now better able to locate and be better aware of activities of thousands of such offenders.
