Field Ops Memo 2006-09: Request for Family Shelter - Level Two and Three Sex Offenders


Given the increased focus on registered sex offenders living in Massachusetts communities and the safety threat that such persons might pose in a family shelter, the Department has formalized its Emergency Assistance (EA) shelter intake and placement policies. Effective immediately, TAO staff will be required to determine if any member in the EA AU age 10 and older is listed as a sex offender with the Sex Offender Registry Board (SORB). Placement of the family will not be delayed awaiting information from SORB.
