Sex Offender Supervision

Due to the unique risk/needs of sex offenders, Dodge-Fillmore- Olmsted Community Corrections has a separate unit to manage sex offender supervision and programming. Supervision Levels are based on factors, which include risk assessment looking at static, dynamic, and acute factors. Other factors considered include but are not limited to treatment progress, integration of treatment into daily living, Minnesota State statutes and Minnesota Department of Corrections policy, and notification level.  

The DFO Sex Offender Unit was named a national resource site for the Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM)in 1999. CSOM is a collaborative effort of the Office of Justice Programs, the National Institute of Corrections, the State Justice Institute, and is administered by the Center for Effective Public Policy and the American Probation and Parole Association. The Sex Offender Unit routinely takes probation into the field to deliver supervision, form collateral contacts, and educate and engage the community to help reduce the risk of sexual re-offense.  

The highly collaborative agent/therapist treatment model for adult and juvenile sex offenders has been in place since 1985.

  • Programming includes outpatient sex offender treatment, aftercare treatment, offender support groups, supervision groups, education classes for offenders and classes to educate family, friends and other support persons of offenders.
  • Day Treatment for developmentally disabled sex offenders is also offered through collaboration with Olmsted County Social Services and a local treatment provider.
  • Residential placement for DD offenders is offered through collaboration with REM group homes.
  • All treatment for sex offenders includes group treatment, individual therapy, family sessions (as needed) and the polygraph.
Collaboration with other agencies and families can be critical to the success of offenders placed in the community. Our department strives for the highest levels of collaboration in order to provide effective, restorative and quality services, which address the needs of the offender, the victim and the community.
