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.
