The Hoquiam Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to RCW 4.24.550, which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex or kidnapping offenders release when the release of information will enhance public safety and protection. The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex or kidnapping offense that requires registration with the Sheriff’s Office in the county of their residence. Further their previous criminal history places them in a classification level, which reflects a potential to re-offend. This sex or kidnapping offender has served the sentence imposed on him/her by the courts and has advised the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office that he will be living at the listed location.
HE/SHE IS NOT WANTED BY THE POLICE AT THIS TIME. THIS NOTIFICATION IS NOT INTENDED TO INCREASE FEAR; RATHER, IT IS OUR BELIEF THAT AN INFORMED PUBLIC IS A SAFER PUBLIC.
The Hoquiam Police Department has no legal authority to direct where a sex or kidnapping offender may or may not live. Unless court ordered restrictions exist, this offender is constitutionally free to live wherever he/she chooses. Sex and kidnapping offenders have always lived in our communities; but it wasn’t until passage of the Community Protection Act of 1990 (which mandates sex and kidnapping offender registration) that law enforcement even knew where convicted sex offenders were living. In many cases, law enforcement is now able to share that information with you. Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate, or harass registered sex or kidnapping offenders will not be tolerated.
Additional sex or kidnapping offender information: As of the date of this bulletin, there are over 18000 sex or kidnapping offenders who haveregistered (since 02/28/90) and are currently living in Washington State. Approximately 400 of these are registered to Grays Harbor County addresses. Approximately 30 are registered to addresses within the city limits of Hoquiam.
