Task Force Conducts Sex Offender Verification Sweep

On Tuesday May 29, 2012 the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office conducted a Sex Offender Verification Sweep of Registered Sex Offenders in Lawrence County.  A task force comprised of Deputies from Lawrence Jasper and Barton County along with the U.S. Marshal Service conducted the one day check.

A total of 10 officers participated.  The sweep was to verify information that is collected by Sheriff's Office to confirm registered offenders are in compliance with state and federal laws.  No arrests were made but charges may be pending on possibly four offenders for non-compliance.

The operation was funded by a grant from the Department of Justice.  Sweeps are also being conducting surrounding counties with the assistance of Lawrence County Deputies.
