Narrative:

On February 21, 2015, Ventura County Sheriff's detectives assisted by probation officers, conducted compliance checks at the residences of registered sex offenders in the city and county areas of Camarillo. The compliance checks were part of the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) grant.

 

Forty-four (44) of the sixty-three (63) sex offenders were located and found to be in compliance with their registration requirements. Sixteen (16) of the registrants were not contacted because they were not home. Three registrants appeared to no longer reside at the registered residence, requiring additional investigation. 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 on an ongoing basis, 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.
