Sex Offender Civil Commitment Advisory Task Force

Purpose

The Sex Offender Civil Commitment Advisory Task Force was created to examine and provide Human Services Commissioner Lucinda Jesson with recommendations on the processes relating to the civil commitment of sex offenders in Minnesota. The task force’s work will concentrate on three topics: the civil commitment and referral process for sex offenders; sex offender civil commitment options that are less restrictive than placement in a secure treatment facility; and, the standards and processes for the reduction in custody for civilly committed sex offenders.
