On Sunday, February 10, 2019, Sheriff’s detectives conducted compliance checks at the residences of thirty (30) registered sex offenders throughout the Fillmore area. The compliance checks were funded through the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE / ELEAS) program.
Twenty Nine (29) of the sex registrants were confirmed to be in compliance with their registration requirement. One (1) registrant was unable to be contacted. Sheriff’s detectives will follow-up to determine if the lone registrant not contacted is out of compliance.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting similar sweeps on an ongoing basis, to verify registered sex offenders are living at their reported residences and in compliance with any probation or parole terms.
