Tomah, Wisc. (NEWS RELEASE) -- The Tomah Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Wisconsin State Statutes, 301.46(2m), which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release when, in the discretion of the agency, the release of the information will enhance public safety, awareness and protection. The individual who appears in this notification has been convicted of a sex offense. This notice is not intended to increase fear; rather, it is our belief an informed public is a safer public.
Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but it was not until Wisconsin's Sex Offender Registration and Community Notification Laws were enacted that law enforcement was able to share this information with the community. Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate, or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated.
