Ventura County Sheriff's Major Crimes Unit
On November 9, 2013, deputies from the Thousand Oaks Police Department and Ventura County Sheriff's Office conducted compliance checks at the residences of 81 registered sex offenders in communities in and around the City of Thousand Oaks. The compliance checks were part of the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) Program. California state law requires persons convicted of specific sexual assault crimes to register with the law enforcement agency where they reside.
70 of the 81 registered sex offenders were in compliance with their registration requirements. 11 of the registrants were not contacted because they were not home or had moved. Detectives will follow-up to determine if those registrants are out-of-compliance. There were no arrests made during any of these contacts.
The Ventura County Sheriff's Office will be conducting similar random checks throughout the county. The purpose of these compliance checks is to verify registered sex offenders are living at their reported residences and within the terms of any probation or parole that may apply.
Thousand Oaks residents are encouraged to visit the Megan's Law website (www.meganslaw.ca.gov/) to familiarize themselves with the sex registrants in their community.
Ventura County Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 reward for information, which leads to the arrest and criminal complaint against person(s) responsible for committing crimes against children in Ventura County. The caller may remain anonymous. The call is not recorded. Call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
