U.S. Marshals, State, and County Officials Conduct Sex Offender Compliance Checks in Vernon and Crawford Counties
Vernon and Crawford County, Wis. – The US Marshals along with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections Sex Offender Registry Program, Vernon County Sheriff’s Department and Crawford County Sheriff’s Department conducted a residence verification operation for registered sex offenders.  On August 16th and 17th deputies checked the addresses of 47 registered sex offenders in Vernon County and 27 in Crawford County.  Three were found to be non compliant in Vernon County and one in Crawford County.   The Sex Offender Registry Program Specialist will investigate the non-compliant sex offenders and make a recommendation to the district attorney.

This initiative is part of the working relationship between the US Marshals Sex Offender Investigations Branch and the Wisconsin Department of Corrections Sex Offender Registration Program which monitors all 21,645 Wisconsin Sex Offenders.  The Wisconsin Department of Corrections maintains a database for the general public at http://offender.doc.state.wi.us/public/.
