Answer

The numeric risk level indicates the level of risk a sex offender poses to the community. A numeric risk level is assigned to each sex offender when the offender is released from a penal institution or placed on community supervision or juvenile probation. It is determined by using the sex offender screening tool adopted by the Risk Assessment Review Committee. There are three different risk levels:

  • Level one (low): indicates that the person poses a low danger to the community and will not likely engage in criminal sexual conduct.
  • Level two (moderate): indicates that the person poses a moderate danger to the community and may continue to engage in criminal sexual conduct.
  • Level three (high): indicates that the person poses a serious danger to the community and will continue to engage in criminal sexual conduct.
