Sex Offender Compliance Operation

The Sacramento Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) Team in conjunction with Sacramento County Probation, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation- Parole Team, State of California Office of Correctional Safety, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Problem Oriented Policing Teams (POP), Rancho Cordova Police Department, Sacramento Police Department and the United States Marshals Service conducted a three day sex offender compliance which began on August 21st.

The focus of the operation targeted registered sex offenders who had failed to register and also to locate sex offenders who were in violation of their sex offender registration requirements or other laws.  Furthermore, the operation was conducted to help develop information regarding the whereabouts of sex offenders who had active warrants for their arrest.                                                                                                                        

During the three-day operation, officers made over 300 probation, parole, and public contacts which led to the arrest and whereabouts of numerous sex offenders. There were 49 residence compliance checks done on sex offenders known addresses. These 49 home compliance checks led detectives to 17 new 290 compliance cases. There were 32 arrests made during the operation. 14 arrests of those arrests were for out of compliance sex offender registrants.

SAFE team members are responsible for approximately 3797 mandated registered sex offenders in the city and county of Sacramento.  Approximately 422 of those mandated sex offender registrants are currently registered as transient.

The SAFE Team is a multi-agency task force led by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, who are assigned to supervise, monitor, and arrest registered sex offenders who are out of compliance with their statutory requirement to register or who are in violation of their probation or parole status.  The SAFE Team members are actively involved in community awareness programs and avail themselves for educational presentations to local, civic, and neighborhood organizations.
