What does “Predatory Sex Offender” mean?
An individual who exhibits characteristics showing a tendency to victimize or injure others and who has been convicted of a sex crime.  The “predatory” designation allows law enforcement, or the supervising agency, to notify the community about a particular sex offender.

Is community notification made on all sex offenders?

No.  Notification is made only on those persons deemed predatory by the Oregon State Police, the Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision and Community Corrections.  Notification may be made for sex offenders off of supervision by local law enforcement.  For persons on supervision, notification may be made by their supervising agency.

Are all sex offenders considered “Predatory”?
No.  The Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision (for parolees), Community Corrections (for probationers) and Oregon State Police (for persons convicted of sex crimes in other states moving into Oregon and persons off of supervision) must make a finding of predatory, based on an assessment of the offender’s crimes and history.  This assessment is based, in part, on previous history and the facts surrounding the sex offense conviction.
