Narrative:

The Ventura County Sheriff's Office recently participated in a nationwide month-long action named 'Operation Broken Heart.' In the month of May, investigators from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office conducted compliance checks on high profile registered sex offenders throughout the 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.

 

Nineteen of the 28 registered sex offenders were in compliance with their registration requirement.  A few 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 following Registered Sex Offenders were in violation of their registration terms and have warrants for their arrest.  Please contact your local police department if seen.
