On Saturday, December 1, 2018, Sheriff’s detectives conducted compliance checks at the residences of eighty four (84) registered sex offenders throughout the Sheriff’s jurisdictions in Ventura County. The compliance checks were funded through the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE / ELEAS) program.

Seventy-two (72) of the sex registrants were confirmed to be in compliance with their registration requirement. Twelve (12) registrants were not contacted because they were not home or had moved. Sheriff’s detectives will follow-up to determine if the remaining registrants not contacted are out of compliance.

During the sweep, one (1) registrant was arrested for an unrelated drug possession offense in the unincorporated area of Oxnard. The drugs were found during a search pursuant to the registrant’s probation terms.

The Sheriff’s Office aggressively pursues prosecution of those sex registrants who fail to comply with their registration requirements. 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.

Residents of Ventura County can visit the Megan’s Law website ( to

familiarize themselves with the sex registrants in their community.
