Sex Registrant Compliance Sweep

Nature of Incident: Sex Registrant Compliance Sweep
Report Number: N/A
Location: City of Ojai and Surrounding Unincorporated Areas
Date & Time: November 19th, 2022
Unit(s) Responsible: Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau
On November 19th, 2022, Sheriff’s detectives conducted compliance checks at the residences of thirty-seven (37) registered sex offenders throughout the city of Ojai and the surrounding unincorporated areas. The compliance checks were funded through the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE / ELEAS) program.
Twenty-seven (27) of the sex registrants were confirmed to be in compliance with their registration requirements. Ten (10) registrants were not contacted because they were either not home or had moved. Sheriff’s detectives will follow-up to determine if the ten registrants not contacted are out-of-compliance.
The Sheriff’s Office aggressively pursues prosecution of those sex registrants who fail to comply
with their registration requirements. Detectives will be conducting similar sweeps on an ongoing
basis to verify the registered sex offenders in our community are living at their reported residences and remain 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.
