The total number of CA residents required to register has grown to 108,128 according to a report today given by the CA Department of Justice (CA DOJ) to the CA Sex Offender Management Board. This total represents an increase of more than 4,000 people during the past six months.
Of that total number, CA DOJ reported that there are 78,191 registrants who are not in custody but who are living in the community. That total number also includes 16,455 registrants who are “in violation” for failure to register as well as 6,697 people who have registered as transients. The number of people registering as transients has remained stable for some time.
In addition to the number of registrants living “in the community”, there are a total of 963 registrants who are patients at Coalinga State Hospital. Of that total, 571 people have been determined to be sexually violent predators (SVP’s) and the remainder are probable cause detainees. Some of the detainees have resided at the hospital for 10 years or longer.
During today’s meeting, Dr. Lea Chankin, who is coordinator of CASOMB, reported that she spoke at the Third Annual ACSOL Conference on June 15 in Los Angeles. She told the CASOMB board members that her presentation “went well.” Several board members, including Chairwoman and Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, encouraged Chankin to participate in future ACSOL conferences as well as conferences conducted by similar organizations.
