The bill implements the recommendations of the department of regulatory agencies' sunset review and report on the sex offender management board (board). The bill continues the functions of the sex offender management board until 2027 2023 . Sections 3 and 4. The bill requires persons who supervise sex offenders (supervising officers) to conform to the guidelines and standards of the board and authorizes the board to work with the supervising agencies to hear and act on complaints against supervising officers, including removing a supervising officer's ability to supervise a sex-offender-specific caseload. Section 5. Under current law, the agency supervising an adult sex offender or juvenile is required to give the offender or juvenile a choice of 2 appropriate treatment provider agencies. The bill requires the supervising agency to provide a list of all approved treatment providers with expertise to work with the specific risks and needs of the offender or juvenile. Section 6. Other statutes define sexually violent predators and require them to register and be subject to community notification. The bill strikes unnecessary language referring to sexually violent predators. Section 7. The bill requires the board to maintain a record of any denial or removal from the list of approved providers or other sanctions due to a provider's criminal history.
