Community-Based Sex Offender Program Evaluation Project Advisory Task Force
Active dates:1993 - ?
Function: The commissioner shall establish an advisory task force consisting of county probation officers from Community Corrections Act counties and other counties, court services providers, and other interested officials. The commissioner shall consult with the task force on how best to implement the requirements of this subdivision.
The Community-Based Sex Offender Program Evaluation Project (CBSOPEP) was created in 1993 by M.S. 241.67, subd. 8. Among other requirements, this statute directs the commissioner of corrections to develop a long-term project that will "provide the necessary data to form the basis to recommend a fiscally sound plan to provide a coordinated statewide system of effective sex offender treatment programming" (M.S. 241.67, subd. 8(3)).
The first meeting of the Advisory Task Force took place at the Central Office of the Department of Corrections on October 21, 1993.
The Community-Based Sex Offender Program Evaluation Project Advisory Task Force was reviewed by the Legislative Commission on Planning and Fiscal Policy (LCPFP) in 2013 as part of their biennial duty required by Minn. Stat. 3.885 Subd. 11. The Minnesota Department of Corrections responded that the task force was no longer in existence, but the LCPFP's 2013 Recommendations called for keeping the group.
As of October 1993, 18 members.
