MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Sheriff Floyd Bonner, Jr. is pleased to announce the May 21 conclusion of an immensely successful operation with the United States Marshals Service and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, which focused on a two-week Sex Offender Registry compliance and fugitive warrant operation named, “OPERATION ROCK & ROLL”.
“The Marshals Service was proud to partner with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office and TBI on this sex offender compliance and fugitive operation,” said U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller. “Safe communities are a priority for the Marshals, and we will continue to answer the call for assistance.”
Week One, May 10-14, focused on the compliance of registered sexual and violent sexual offenders who report to the Sheriff’s Office for updates and mandatory annually or quarterly reporting. Teams searched for these registered sexual offenders who had absconded from the registry with warrants issued by their reporting agencies (Bureau of Prisons and Parole, SCSO, or Memphis PD).
Week Two, May 17-20, focused on sexual and violent sexual offenders who had absconded from the registry and had warrants, or individuals who had warrants for their arrest for sexual and violent sexual offenses who had not reported to court and were not yet on the registry.
