Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP) locations

MSOP Moose Lake

The MSOP Moose Lake facility houses individuals who have been petitioned for civil commitment but not yet committed, clients participating in initial and primary stages of treatment, and clients who refuse to participate in sex offender-specific treatment. While at the MSOP Moose Lake facility, clients who participate in the treatment program begin by building their readiness for change and work toward disclosing their personal history and factors that lead to their offense(s).

The Moose Lake facility currently has two buildings – the Main Building and Complex I. The Main Building was built in 1995 to house 100 clients and an additional 50 beds were added in 2000. Complex I was built in 2009 to house up to 400 clients. In 2012, improvement to MSOP-Moose Lake’s infrastructure were added, including treatment and programming rooms, kitchen and dining areas, educational and vocational work space, and a loading dock. Security systems were also updated enhancing client, staff and public safety. These improvements provided needed space for clinical services and improved overall operation and efficiencies at the Moose Lake campus.

MSOP St. Peter

Allowing gradual increases in privileges provides opportunities for clients to manage risk, apply what they have learned in treatment, and demonstrate their ability to one day live safely and responsibly in the community. Clients who have demonstrated meaningful change and have progressed through treatment are moved to the MSOP St. Peter facility to begin the final phase of treatment and reintegration programming. St. Peter also provides alternative treatment for clients for whom conventional programming is not appropriate. These clients are in need of unique treatment approaches due to developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, or severe learning disabilities.

The MSOP St. Peter facility is located on the campus of the St. Peter Regional Treatment Center. MSOP’s Pexton Building contains four, 28-bed units. The Shantz Building currently makes use of two, 36-bed units within that building. MSOP also has living space on the campus outside the secure perimeter for up to 15 clients undergoing the final stage of the program, called Community Preparation Services or CPS.
