Predatory offender released from civil commitment

(ABC 6 News)- Rochester Police Department (RPD) is releasing information pursuant to Minnesota Statute 253D.32 regarding those committed to the Department of Human Services (DHS) Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP) who have been provisionally discharged by judicial order.

This statute requires a broad level of public notification for anyone transitioning from MSOP into a community setting.

Brian Lee Buse, a Level 3 predatory offender, is transitioning February 7, 2023 from MSOP to the 2100 block of Campus Drive SE, Rochester, MN 55904.

Convicted predatory offenders have always been released to live in our communities, but it was not until passage of the Registration Act of 1991 that law enforcement had a right to know an offender’s residence or track their moves after his/her initial release from custody. With the passage of the Community Notification Act, law enforcement now may share information with the public about many of these offenders. This creates an informed community that can engage with law enforcement to address any concerns and/or issues involving these individuals.
