On Saturday, February 27th, 2016, Sheriff's detectives conducted compliance checks at the residences of thirty five (35) registered sex offenders throughout the county. The compliance checks were part of the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE / ELEAS) Grant.


Fifteen (15) of the offenders were found to be in compliance with their registration requirement. Nine (9) registrants were verified as living at their residence but were not contacted because they were not home. Eleven (11) registrants were not contacted because nobody was home, or the registrant had moved. Sheriff's detectives will follow-up to determine if those 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.
