Question: Will the community be notified of a sexual offender moving into a given area in Wisconsin?

Answer: Yes. The Wisconsin law is modeled on Megan’s Law, which was the start of these kinds of laws. But this allows the department of corrections or any law enforcement agency to give out information when a person is moving into an area and they have a sex offense conviction in their past. The Department of Corrections or the law enforcement agency is able to determine what area they will distribute information to and what exact information they will give out. But that law does allow them to give that information out as they see appropriate.
