GJPD, Assisting Agencies Complete Sex Offender Compliance Checks #GVCopBeat

Posted on

In late August, the Grand Junction Police Department successfully completed a multi-day sex offender compliance and verification check.

During the three-day period, the Grand Junction Police Department, the Colorado Department of Corrections Parole Division, and the U.S. Marshals Service conducted unannounced visits to the homes of known sex offenders within the City limits of Grand Junction. Law enforcement personnel conduct these checks to ensure those who have been convicted of sex offenses are in compliance with state laws. The objective of this operation was to identify the offender, verify their registration, and confirm their address and place of employment.

The operation’s effort resulted in 231 compliance checks. Out of all the compliance checks completed within the City limits of Grand Junction, 11 offenders were found to be in violation. Offenders found to be in violation will be further investigated by officers with the Grand Junction Police Department and may incur possible warrants for Failing to Register.

The Grand Junction Police Department along with contributing agencies, conduct sex offender compliance checks every year and depending on the offender, multiple checks are made throughout the year to ensure continued compliance is met.

    Did this crap only happen to those on p&p or all sex offenders? If only p&p big deal they did their job. If all sex offenders I hope the non p&p sues the crap out of all LEOs involved for violating the 4th Amendment of the US Contitution. No warrant no implied right to entry per USSC.

    Does GJPD also check on those convicted of domestic violence/assault, DUI driving, home invasion burglaries, assault?? All if those groups have much higher recidivism rates than those convicted of sex offenses and are, therefore, more likely to harm others. But, in reality, you don’t really care, to you? And, after all, it’s safer to conduct compliance checks on those convicted of sex offenses. They have a very low propensity toward violence. So you stay safe rather than check on people who are more likely to open fire on you LEOs such as DV offenders, firearms offenders, those convicted of violent assault, etc. Yeah, make a big deal out of doing the easy, safe task rather than actually protect citizens from real potential harm. SMH *shameful*

    People, including myself, have submitted comments. But GJPD has chosen not to post those comments. Why?
