San Leandro Police conducts compliance operation on locally registered sex offenders

On Wednesday, December 13th, 2017, detectives from the San Leandro Police Department conducted a city-wide compliance check on approximately 60 registered sex offenders.
 
Four teams of officers and detectives set out during the early evening hours and attempted to contact locally residing sex offenders to ensure registration compliance in accordance with the law. These inspections consisted of verifying places of residence, vehicles owned (or driven by) and places of employment. Registered sex offenders are required to update their status with the local law enforcement agency under section 290 of the California Penal Code.
 
In total, 59 residential addresses were checked and 40 sex offenders were contacted and found to be in compliance. Six (6) sex offenders were found to be out of compliance and 13 were not home. One offender was arrested for having an outstanding warrant and being in possession of drugs and an illegal weapon.

"The compliance checks are necessary to ensure full compliance with the law," said San Leandro Police Lt. Isaac Benabou. "These checks are not an intrusion of privacy upon these residents but rather a courtesy to assure these individuals have met the requirements under the conditions of their case."

 All out-of-compliance cases will be sent to the District Attorney for review and prosecution.
