Community Meeting: July 5, 2017 at Fridley City Hall, Council Chambers


You are invited to a Community Notification Meeting on July 5, 2017, at 6:30 p.m., at Fridley City Hall, Council Chambers: 6431 University Avenue NE. Representatives from the Department of Corrections and the Fridley Police Department will be available to provide you with useful information on public safety.

*Minnesota Statute 244.052 authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sexual or predatory offender's release from prison or a secure treatment facility when the Fridley Police Department believes that the release of information will enhance public safety and protection.

This offender is not wanted by the police at this time and has served the sentence imposed on him by the court. This notification is not intended to increase fear in the community. Law enforcement believes that an informed public is a safer public. The Fridley Police Department may not direct where the offender does or does not reside, nor can we direct where he works or goes to school. The risk level of this offender has been determined largely on his potential to re-offend based on his previous behavior.

Personal Safety Tips


  • Talk to your family, especially children and vulnerable adults, about sexual violence.
  • Assure your children that they can talk with you about questions they have.
  • Open conversations about good touch verses bad touch, and what to do if a stranger approaches them or if someone they know acts inappropriately towards them.
  • Remind children of basic safety rules: Never talk to stranger; Don't accept rides from someone you don't know; Watch out for commons lures/tricks (adult asking for directions, requesting help to look for a lost pet, offering money, candy or toys).
  • Teach children to use the buddy-system.
  • Listen to your instincts. Tell children to listen to theirs.
  • Keep windows and doors locked, even when you are home.
  • If you live in a secure building, do not let people in that you don't know, even if it seems impolite.
  • Talk to your neighbors and report any suspicious activity in your neighborhood.
