The Grand Forks Police Department provides for the tracking and verification of those individuals that have been convicted of sex offenses, offenses against children and those that have been adjudicated as sexually dangerous individuals. This is accomplished through the Offender Tracking and Verification Program (OTVP).
Level III (High Risk) offenders and homeless offenders are contacted at least every 30 days to verify their status and, upon initial registration or the assignment of a risk level, a public notification is held as appropriate. Moderate Level offenders are checked on every 90 days and Low Risk offenders are verified every 120 days.
Conviction information about Level III offenders may be found at the North Dakota Attorney General’s website:
www.sexoffender.nd.gov which contains lists of all registered offenders in North Dakota.
If members of the public have questions regarding this program, or have information pertaining to any unregistered offenders, they are encouraged to contact Sergeant Mark Ellingson at the Grand Forks Police Department Specialized Resource Bureau at 701-787-8083, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
