|Dear Campus Community,
As students make their way back to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh campus for the start of the 2018-2019 academic year, safety is a top priority. The primary goal of the UW Oshkosh Police Department is to provide a safe campus environment conducive to personal growth and educational development.
Due to the proximity to the UW Oshkosh campus, we share the important information below from the Oshkosh Police Department regarding a sex offender release in the area:
“The Oshkosh Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Wisconsin SS 301.45 and 301.46 (Act 440), which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offenders release when, in the discretion of the agency, the release of information will enhance public safety.
“The following person is being released: DANIEL L LARSON M/W 11-28-1974 is being released to 1105 Jefferson Street in Oshkosh on Sept. 11, 2018.
“A community meeting is being scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at the Alumni Welcome Center at UWO located at 625 Pearl Avenue in Oshkosh. The public is invited to attend this meeting. Sex Offender Registration Specialist Heather Dedering will be in attendance to answer your questions. A member from a local counseling service may also be in attendance to present protective behaviors. It is suggested that children not attend due to content.”
Oshkosh Police, Unviersity Police and Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office officials will also be at the Sept. 4 meeting to offer support and answer questions.
If you have any questions or concerns, contact UW Oshkosh Police Detective Mike Bartlein at (920) 424-1212.
The UW Oshkosh Police Department is dedicated to developing partnerships with the community we serve in order to support and enhance the mission of the UW Oshkosh. The University Police department offers a variety of resources to keep students safe, including Safewalks and many other resources within the UWO Mobile App.
