Registering as a Sex Offender in Denver, Castle Rock, and Aurora means that law enforcement and the community have the ability to look up where you live and other identifying information. Residents of Wheat Ridge were recently up in arms, as they were not notified that a registered sex offender had moved into their neighborhood. The thing is, law enforcement does not notify residents every time a person convicted of a sex offense moves.  The only time notifications are made is when someone deemed a sexually violent predator is moving. That designation is the only one that requires community notification.
