The Grand Forks Police Department, in accordance with North Dakota State Law, is notifying the City of Grand Forks and the surrounding area of the presence of a Level III (High Risk) Sex Offender living in Grand Forks.

DWIGHT MOSES now resides at 1702 20th Ave South – in the city of Grand Fork, ND. MOSES has been convicted of GROSS SEXUAL IMPOSITION involving force or threat of serious bodily injury or kidnapping; GROSS SEXUAL IMPOSITION in which the offender is an adult and the victim is under age 12; or, kidnapping and the adult offender is other than the victim’s parent.

The North Dakota Sex Offender Risk Assessment Committee assigned MOSES a risk level of HIGH and as a result has a LIFE-TIME registration requirement in North Dakota.

The Grand Forks Police Department provides for the tracking and verification of those individuals that have been convicted of sex offenses, offenses against children and those that have been adjudicated as sexually dangerous individuals.  This is accomplished through the Offender Tracking and Verification Program (OTVP).  There are 114 offenders registered with the Grand Forks Police Department that either live, work or attend school within the City of Grand Forks.   Of these 115, there are 11 currently assigned a risk level of HIGH.  The rest are classified as MODERATE or LOW risk, or have not been assigned a risk level.

Level III (High Risk) offenders are contacted at least every 30 days to verify their status and, upon initial registration or the assignment of a risk level, a public notification is held as appropriate.  Information about these and other registered offenders is available through specific request to the Grand Forks Police Department, although certain information regarding juvenile offenders is subject to restriction.

Conviction information about Level III offenders may be found at the North Dakota Attorney General’s website: www.sexoffender.nd.gov which contains lists of all registered offenders in North Dakota.
