CO: Englewood cuts in half its distance restrictions on where sex offenders can live

The Englewood City Council on Monday approved a measure that would cut in half its 2,000-foot buffer between parks and schools and where newly arrived sex offenders can live. But city leaders decided to allow offenders who already live in the city to continue doing so regardless of the buffer. Full Article

Now, they should consider cutting it altogether since it does not do anything more than give a placebo effect. Just because there is relief in having more open housing areas to RCs it does not mean more housing will be open to RCs in these areas.

Yes, they should do away with it completely. As with most reporting, they did not portray the ordinance correctly. It applies only to people declared a violent predator, people with felony convictions requiring registration, and people with “multiple convictions for offenses requiring registration.” This does not make it more palatable, but we should know correctly to who it applies. People should have the correct details. Knowing this, it will be a little harder to fight since it is more narrowly tailored. It does apply to all those who are convicted of offense not involving minors, which means it is still rather broad. Even if it were more narrowly focused, it would be in my mind still unacceptable. Just throwing it out there.

Would be interesting to see a city map now with the new distance in play

Englewood CO not Inglewood CA

It’s incremental improvement, is it not?

Yes, it is incremental Timmr, but now the next step needs to be taken in Englewood, CO
