The La Porte County Sheriff’s Office coordinated a compliance check of a selected group of registered Sex Offenders across La Porte County on Oct. 27.  Agency personnel from the Criminal Investigations Division, Warrants Division and Civil Division, along with the assistance of the US Marshals Service, participated in the operation.

The unannounced check of the 30 Sex Offenders deemed all of them compliant with their information on the Sex and Violent Offender Registry.  Last week’s compliance check was in addition to the required checks of all registered Sex Offenders (206) residing in La Porte County.

The agency, along with all other Indiana Sheriffs, utilize the OffenderWatch Sex Offender Management System to manage and monitor the whereabouts of these convicted offenders.  Citizens can access the system by visiting
