Sex Offender Compliance Sweeps

Every effort is made to confirm sex offenders are in compliance with the law.

Sweeps are an effective operational tool performed in collaboration with partnering federal, state, county and city law enforcement agencies to ensure registered sex offenders are in compliance. Not all sweep operations result in a press release.
