The Berlin Police Department would like to remind the community that they have access to the Connecticut Sex Offender Registry via the internet. Currently there are 11 registered sex offenders residing in the Town of Berlin.
This information is made available for the purpose of complying with Connecticut General Statutes 54-250 et seq., which requires the Connecticut Department of Public Safety to establish and maintain a registry of persons who are required to register under Sections 54-250 through 54-261 of the Connecticut General Statutes. The Registry is based on the legislature’s decision to facilitate access to information, which is publicly available, about persons convicted of sexual offenses.
The Department of Public Safety has not considered or assessed the specific risk of re-offense with regard to any individual prior to his or her inclusion within this Registry, and has made no determination that any individual included in the Registry is currently dangerous. Individuals included within the Registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction record or court finding and state law. The main purpose of providing this data on the Internet is to make the information more easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individual.
The department regularly conducts required compliance checks and community notifications on those registered offenders who reside within the Town of Berlin.
