On February 1, 2014, deputies from the Moorpark Police Department, Thousand Oaks Police Department and Ventura County Sheriff's Office conducted compliance checks at the residences of 57 registered sex offenders in the cities of Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, and Unincorporated areas in the East County. The compliance checks were part of the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) grant. California state law requires persons convicted of specific sexual assault crimes to register with the agency where they reside.
49 of the 57 registered sex offenders were in compliance with their registration requirement. 8 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.
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.
