COZAD POLICE DEPARTMENT
As stated on the Nebraska State Patrol Sex Offender Registry Web Page; "Sex offender registry information shall not be used to retaliate against the registrants, their families, or their employers in any way. Vandalism, verbal or written threats of harm are illegal and will result in arrest and prosecution."
The Cozad Police Department would like to assist residents and visitors of Cozad by providing available information about individuals who have pleaded guilty or been found guilty of sex offenses and who live, work, or attend school in our area.
Information on this page and the State Patrol Sex Offender Registry page is for information only. It is in hopes that the community, individuals, and family's are aware of sex offenders in the area, develop plans and prepare accordingly.
Nebraska State Statute
The Legislature finds that sex offenders present a high risk to commit repeat offenses. The Legislature further finds that efforts of Law Enforcement Agencies to protect their communities, conduct investigations, and quickly apprehend sex offenders are impaired by the lack of available information about individuals who have pleaded guilty to or have been found guilty of sex offenses and who live, work or attend school in their jurisdiction. The Legislature further finds that state policy should assist efforts of local Law Enforcement Agencies to protect their communities by requiring sex offenders to register with local Law Enforcement agencies as provided by the Sex Offender Registration Act.
