Sex Offender Release Notification
The Appleton Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Wisconsin State Statute 301.46 which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offenders release, when, in the discretion of the agency, the release of information will enhance public safety, awareness and protection. The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted for a sexual offense. Further, his criminal history places him in a classification level which reflects higher risk to the community.
This sex offender is not wanted by the police at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather, it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.
Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but it was not until the Sex Offender Registration and Community Notification Law was enacted that law enforcement was able to share this information with the community. Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated.
Michael R. Alger (M/W, 02/09/60) has criminal convictions for sex offenses in Outagamie County in 1994, 1995, and 1997. He has been convicted in the past of multiple sexual assaults, involving both minor and adult females.
