A letter to all Franklin residents from Police Chief Oliva

February 24, 2010

To:  City of Franklin Residents


RE: Registered Sex Offender Notification


            The Franklin Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Wisconsin State Statute 301.46(2m), which allows law enforcement agencies to notify the public that a sex offender is living in the community. This notification is not intended to heighten fear; rather, it is intended to increase your awareness of this person’s presence in the community.


     Franklin Municipal Ordinance Chapter 167 prohibits sex offenders from residing within 2000 feet from a facility listed under 167-3, and prohibits sex offenders from being present in Child Safety Zones which include most if not all areas frequented by children  and are listed under 167-6.


The subject of this notification is Garrett M. Klumb.   Mr. Klumb was convicted of Possession of Child Pornography in 2004.  Because Mr. Klumb was a resident of Franklin at the time of his conviction, he is allowed to return here.  This letter is to notify residents that Registered Sex Offender Garrett M. Klumb will be residing at 4442 W. Sherwood Drive as of March 3, 2010.


Garrett Klumb is not currently wanted by the police for any criminal offenses.   He is under supervision by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections and will be until March 5, 2014.  As such, he must conform to all rules and regulations as imposed by his Probation agent.


While Mr. Klumb is allowed to live in Franklin, he still must conform to City Ordinance which prohibits him from being present in Child Safety Zones.  


A copy of Garrett Klumb’s Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry photo is attached to this letter. For a color photo and additional information on the City of Franklin’s Registered Sex Offenders, see the police department’s website which can be accessed through the City of Franklin’s website at
