The Manner of Notification

City councils may adopt policies addressing when information disclosed under the law must be disclosed in languages in addition to English. The policies may designate whether the information shall be disclosed orally, in writing, or both. Policies may provide for different approaches based upon the prevalence of non-English languages in different neighborhoods. Minn. Stat. § 244.052, subd. 4.

A law enforcement agency that discloses information must make a good faith effort to make the notification within 14 days of receiving a confirmed address from the Department of Corrections indicating that the offender will reside at the address listed. Minn. Stat. § 244.052, subd. 4.
