Ventura County Probation Department
On July 19, 2014, deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office conducted compliance checks at the residences of forty registered sex offenders in the communities of Saticoy, El Rio, Nyeland Acres, Hollywood Beach, Silver Strand Beach and the Rincon. The compliance checks were part of the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) grant.
Thirty five of the forty registered sex offenders were in compliance with their registration requirement. Five of the registrants were not contacted because they were not home or had moved. Sheriff's detectives will follow-up to determine if the registrants are out-of-compliance.
The Ventura County Sheriff's Office will be conducting similar sweeps throughout the county. The purpose is to verify registered sex offenders are living at their reported residences and in compliance with any probation or parole terms.
Residents of Ventura County can visit the Megan's Law website (www.meganslaw.ca.gov) to familiarize themselves with the sex registrants in their community.
