|Sex Offender Compliance Operation in Fairbanks and North Pole|
Fairbanks-North Pole, AK -
On Monday, January 29, 2018 through Thursday, February 1,
2018, “Operation Frostbite” was conducted by the U.S. Marshals,
Fairbanks Police Department, Alaska State Troopers, the Alaska
Department of Corrections-Fairbanks Adult Probation & Parole, U.S.
Probation and Pretrial and the Alaska Sex Offender Registry. This was a
joint law enforcement effort to confirm that all convicted sex offenders
are properly reporting to the Sex Offender Registry and to reduce the
number of non-compliant sex offenders in Fairbanks and North Pole,
The law enforcement teams conducted sex offender compliance checks, probation home visits, conducted interviews and searched for convicted sex-offenders who were not at the address they reported to the Alaska Sex Offender Registry. The intent was to verify that all of Fairbanks and North Pole’s sex offenders are living where they are reporting and to arrest anyone that was non-compliant or a fugitive for failing to register. In addition to the assigned mission, the teams responded to a shooting in Fairbanks that occurred in the Aurora neighborhood Tuesday morning and actively participated in the manhunt and arrest of the suspect.
