LETTER TO BOARD OF TRUSTEES: ATTN: BOARD OF TRUSTEES FOR THE TOWN OF PALISADE REQUEST FOR THE REDUCTION OF FEES FOR SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATIONS Members of the Board of Trustees, The Palisade Police Department would like to request the reduction of the current fees for the registration of sex offenders. Currently, our fees represent the maximum that can be charged by statute. After attending meetings with local sex offender registrars from other agencies, it has been determined that it is in the best interest of compliance from these offenders that the fee be reduced from a $75.00 registration, to a flat $20.00 for initial, monthly, yearly and quarterly registrations, with no charge for updates or de-registration.Advertisment
Most of our offenders are unemployed, and a higher fee only makes it more difficult to obtain compliance. Thank you for your consideration on this matter. Sincerely, Carrie Benham Records Manager/Sex Offender Registrar Palisade Police Department
