Dear Community Member,
The West St. Paul Police Department recently received the attached public notification regarding a Level 3 Predatory Offender, William Kibble, returning to the City on or about March 12, 2018.
Back in March 2017, when Mr. Kibble first moved into the City, the police department conducted a community wide meeting. Since then, Mr. Kibble violated the conditions of his release, alcohol use and not obtaining approval for out of state travel, and was temporarily sent back to jail. Because his absence from the City was relatively short, the police department is choosing to inform our residents of his return via this written notification.
The Community Notification Law (Minnesota Statute 244.052) allows law enforcement agencies to disclose to the public any information regarding the offender contained in the risk assessment report that is relevant and necessary to protect the public. It helps residents be aware, be alert and be informed. This information is not intended to cause undue fear or inappropriate actions such as harassing the offender.
