Meet 6 Denver Sexually Violent Predators Featured on YouTube
In 2015, the Denver Police Department began spreading the word about sexually violent predators in the city via YouTube.

Since our last item on the topic, the DPD has released six more videos about sexually violent predators — one focusing on a previously profiled individual on the move, the rest about offenders not yet introduced to residents of their new neighborhoods.
Among the information provided: the crimes for which each man was convicted, plus schools, recreation centers and parks within one mile of the residence he registered with the department.
