On February 16, 2013, deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office conducted compliance checks at the residences of fifty-two registered sex offenders in 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.
Forty-three of the fifty-two registered sex offenders were in compliance with their registration requirement. Nine 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. During the compliance checks, one arrest was made for an unrelated narcotics offense.
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.
