The Grand Forks Police Department provides for the tracking and verification of those individuals that have been convicted of sex offenses, offenses against children and those that have been adjudicated as sexually dangerous individuals.  This is accomplished through the Offender Tracking and Verification Program (OTVP). There are 118 offenders registered with the Grand Forks Police Department that either live, work or attend school within the City of Grand Forks. Of these 118, there are 13 currently assigned a risk level of HIGH.  The rest are classified as MODERATE or LOW risk, or have not been assigned a risk level.

Level III (High Risk) offenders are contacted at least every 30 days to verify their status and, upon initial registration or the assignment of a risk level, a public notification is held as appropriate.  Information about these and other registered offenders is available through specific request to the Grand Forks Police Department, although certain information regarding juvenile offenders is subject to restriction.

Conviction information about Level III offenders may be found at the North Dakota Attorney General’s website: which contains lists of all registered offenders in North Dakota.
