Northglenn puts restrictions on where sex offenders can live

Posted

Northglenn City Council voted unanimously for restrictions on where a sex offender can live in the city. 

The restrictions fall on those who have been convicted of being a sexually violent predator or those who have been required to register under the Colorado Sex Offender Registration Act. 

Those rules restrict them from establishing a permanent or temporary residence within 750 feet of any school, 500 feet of any park, playground, licensed daycare center, recreation center or swimming pool and any property located adjacent to a designated public or private school bus stop.

Deputy Chief of Police Randall Darlin said the change is meant to address concerns on how to protect places where children congregate but is balancing how much authority the city has to do so. 

Darlin said if the restrictions were too strict, the ordinance could be subject to challenges down the line. He said he hopes it strikes the balance of protection while also providing a place to live for individuals who fall into the category.

“We still provide ample area for individuals who fall under this ordinance while still providing protection to children in Northglenn,” he said.
