Upcoming Sex Offender Registration Training Classes

The CBI currently does not have any Sex Offender Registration and Sexually Violent Predator (SVP) Community Notification Training classes scheduled.  Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will work to schedule some new training classes as soon as we possible can in 2021.
