Narrative:

On Saturday, March 3, 2018, Sheriff's detectives conducted compliance checks at the residences

of twenty-nine (29) registered sex offenders throughout the Fillmore area. The compliance

checks were funded through the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE / ELEAS) Grant.

Twenty-seven (27) of the sex registrants were confirmed to be in compliance with their

registration requirements. Two (2) 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 prosecution of sex

registrants who fail to comply with their registration requirements.

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.
