Sheriff's Office conducts sex registrant checks

Published on 2/25/2011

On Wednesday, 37 local law enforcement officers checked on 160 sex offenders to ensure they were compliant with probation and parole requirements and that they are living in their registered locations.

The Sheriff’s Office did not release statistics on how many of those offenders, if any, were out of compliance. Those involved in the check were submitted by local police agencies, the county Probation Department and California Adult Parole. Those same agencies along with the Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Marshals Service conducted the countywide check. 

There were no arrests made and all of the registrants that were contacted were in compliance, said Lt. Ray Lunny of the Sheriff’s Office.

Follow-up checks are planned on those registrants who were not contacted and the names of registrants known to have fled to other states were given to the U.S. Marshals Service.
