At the Sex Offender Registration Office at 442 9th Street. The office is open from 7:45 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday (Except City Holidays). The Registrant must personally appear and present valid identification. The application can be completed there, or picked up and brought back at a later time.

If the exemption is approved, the Registrant will obtain the exemption at the Sex Offender Registration Office.
The Chief may take into consideration the reason for registration, offense committed that resulted in the conviction, the date of conviction(s), age of victim(s) at time of offense, sex of victim(s), offender’s relationship to victim(s), length of time between conviction and request, pending investigations, length and duration of the requested exemption, location of the park where the exemption is being requested, and any other factor that the Chief considers appropriate. NOTE: IF A REGISTRANT IS CURRENTLY ON PROBATION OR PAROLE HE OR SHE HAS NOT COMPLETED HIS OR HER SENTENCE, AND THE APPLICATION WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE DENIED. The Registrant may apply again after completing his or her probation or parole.
