C.R.S. 16-22-108 (7)(a)   A local law enforcement agency may establish a registration fee to be paid by persons registering and re-registering annually or quarterly with the local law enforcement agency pursuant to the provisions of this section. The amount of the fee shall reflect the actual direct costs incurred by the local law enforcement agency in implementing the provisions of this article but shall not exceed seventy-five dollars for the initial registration with the local law enforcement agency and twenty-five dollars for any subsequent annual or quarterly registration.

 

Most sexual assaults are committed by someone the victim knows. A stranger does not pose the highest risk to you, as 80-95% of sex offenders are known to their victims and include relatives, friends and authority figures.

Less that 16% of sex crimes are reported to the police. Most convicted sex offenders are supervised and managed by community supervision teams consisting of criminal justice officers (probation, parole, community corrections staff), polygraph examiners, and treatment providers. While sex offenders cannot be cured, it is believed that some can be managed.

C.R.S. 16-22-112(1) prohibits sex offender registry information to be used to inflict retribution or additional punishment upon the registrant.

The state sex offender registry includes only those persons who have been convicted of certain acts of unlawful sexual behavior since July 1, 1991, and who are in compliance with the sex offender registry as a safeguard against perpetrators of sexual assault on their communities. The crime for which a person is convicted may not accurately reflect the level of risk.
