In 1994, the Federal Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act (42 U.S.C. 14071), required States to enact Sex Offender Registry Programs. Indian Tribes have the option to create their own program. On August 9th, 2001, the Menominee Tribal Legislature enacted Ordinance No. 01-12 entitled “Sex Offender Registration and Notification Program”. This law was created to monitor and track people convicted of sex crimes and to provide access to this information for police, victims and the general public.
This Web site is designed to enhance public safety by making the information contained in the Sex Offender Registry easily accessible to the public. It will also serve to enhance public awareness about sexual violence in our communities and provide valuable information about the ways in which individuals and communities can protect themselves and those they love from acts of sexual violence. The hope is that this Web site may also, in some meaningful way, reduce future victimization and the suffering that accompanies it.
The Menominee Tribal Police Department continually seeks to improve the site for these purposes. As part of the Adam Walsh Act, the site displays the current reported residence address of registered sex offenders who are in the community.
The public is encouraged to notify the Menominee Tribal Sex Offender Registry Program about registrant information on this Web site that may be incomplete or inaccurate, or information concerning the whereabouts of non-compliant registrants. If there is information reported here that you believe is incomplete or inaccurate please call the Menominee Tribal Police Department at 715-799-5811.
It is not the intent of the Legislature that this information be used to injure, harass, or commit a criminal act against persons named in the registry, their families, or employers. Anyone who takes any criminal action against these registrants, including vandalism of property, verbal or written threats of harm or physical assault against these registrants, their families or employers is subject to criminal prosecution.
