Sex offender compliance checks in WV

March 31st, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The US Marshals Service and the West Virginia State Police joined forces and resources to conduct sex offender compliance checks in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia.
Operation Rolling Rock was an operation funded by the US Marshals Sex Offender Investigations Branch. The operation provided $21,600 in overtime funds to the West Virginia State Police to conduct sex offender compliance checks. The operation began March 22, 2015 and ended March 29, 2015. The operation focused on Berkeley, Jefferson, Hampshire and Mineral Counties.
In West Virginia, the State Police is tasked with registering and monitoring persons who have been convicted of sex crimes. These four counties have approximately 700 offenders who are required to register. Offenders in West Virginia are required to update their registration annually, and the State Police verifies this information through compliance checks. Any offender found in non compliance of the registry may face criminal charges.
