OJAI, Calif. - Ventura County Sheriff's Office detectives conducted compliance checks for 35 sex offenders throughout Ojai and the surrounding unincorporated areas on Saturday.

Detectives report that 34 of the 35 offenders were confirmed to be in compliance with their probation or parole terms. Detectives were unable to reach one offender either because they weren't home or had moved. Sheriff's detectives will follow up to determine if the non-responder was actually out-of-compliance.

The Sheriff's Office said they aggressively pursue the prosecution of sex registrants who fail to comply with their probation or parole.

Detectives will be conducting similar sweeping checks to verify that registered sex offenders are living at their reported residences and remain registration requirements.

The Sheriff's Office said compliance checks are funded through the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE / ELEAS) program.
