Narrative:

On Saturday, July 22, 2017, Sheriff's detectives conducted compliance checks at the residences of Thirty (30) registered sex offenders throughout the city and county areas of Ojai. The compliance checks were part of the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE / ELEAS) Grant.

 

Twenty Five (25) of the sex registrants were confirmed to be in compliance with their registration requirement. Five (5) registrants were not contacted because they were not home or had moved. Sheriff's detectives will follow-up to determine if the remaining registrants not contacted are out-of-compliance. The Sheriff's Office aggressively pursues for prosecution those registrants found to be 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.
