Compliance checks conducted of 620 people with a sex offense conviction, [only] 18 arrests made

Source: msn.com 6/18/21

A recent  compliance check of people convicted of a sex offense was conducted in the valley during the week of June 7-11, 2021.

The LVMPD’s “Sex Offender Apprehension Team”, in conjunction with the United States Marshals Service “Sex Offender Predator Apprehension Team” and Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force, reached out to over 620 registered people.

Fifteen arrests were made for Failure to Obey Sex Offense Registration Laws and an additional three arrests were made for outstanding arrest warrants related to current alledged sex crime investigations.

People listed on the Registry because of a sex offense conviction must verify their address with law enforcement according to their assigned tier.

Wow, most of the registrants were not in compliance!

No, wait, let me double check my math. Hmm. Half? 20%? Let me get my calculator.

18 arrests divided by 620 checks equals…

2.9%! Definitely worth a news article! I mean, that’s probably WAYYYY more than the general population who violate parole.

Hmm. Let me read
https://www.themarshallproject.org/2019/02/11/want-to-shrink-the-prison-population-look-at-parole

What?! 16.3% of all parolees are sent back to prison for technical violations!

More math: that means…drum roll… 2.9%/16.3% = registrants are only 17% of the rate of the general parolee population.

No, there’s no hysteria going on in this article. Move along. Nothing to see.

Notice it says that an additional 3 arrests were made for warrants for “alleged” sex crimes investigation. So that means of the 620 people harassed .005% had an alleged re offense. And from my incarceration days I know that drug dealers have a 65% recidivism rate, so yeah, it is all hype. no registry for drug dealing, no drug dealer predator control division out checking on them 20 years down the road after release.

It was so nice of them to “reach out” like that. Doesn’t it give you a warm fuzzy feeling?

They can reach out and smack themselves in the head for another waste of money. If they aren’t with AT&T they can stick the gesture of reaching out and go fly a kite!!

Oh boy, You mention AT&T! What was the courts emphasis of focus in the constitutional discussion in US V AT&T? NETWORK PRIVACY!I

The fed spook folks under J. E. Hoover learned a very valuable lesson with respect to the auspices of domestic surveillance. Thus the Whetterling Act necessitated a preamble. RE:Plausible deniability in intent. Obviously coveralls for known potential unconstitutional outcomes. In more familiar terms the same reasons all 50 of the individual state’s registries contains a warning about unlawful use.

Well I have to say that I feel much better and safer knowing where those registrants are – all 620 of them. I can sleep better at night now. Oh give me a break!!

Talk about spending money on resources for nonsense. Wow!!
And to think tax dollars that we pay go towards these useless efforts.

See the registry is working… for those without blindfolds seeing how inefficient these hateful laws are to communities. How many crimes were committed as law enforcement knocked on doors and to find out damn this one is compliant too? Sure doesn’t seem non compliance is frightening and high; however the hysteria of the sheeple is.

That’s all law enforcement agencies have in their Arsenal is chargeing people with FTR? People who own homes before and after being put on the registery never have to worry about being hunted down like a dog, captured and sent to prison for failing to register.
That’s because law enforcement has very little power and intimidation on homeowners when they come to do their compliance checks after verifying yourself you can say thank you now get the f*** off my property and slam the door in their faces.
That’s why law enforcement goes after the weakest people on the registery like people with physical handicaps, mental illnesses, drug addictions, the homeless and unemployed they don’t go after people who have the ability and resources to hire a lawyer and Sue the Hell out of their as for harassment.

Good luck 🗣

It clearly says: “People listed on the Registry because of a sex offense conviction must verify their address with law enforcement according to their assigned tier” and that is at their ANNUAL (unless homeless).

First of all, there were only FIFTEEN (15), not EIGHTEEN (18) arrests made due to registration violations. Three of the arrests were for individuals whom already had arrest warrants for other sex crimes.

So let’s break it down: 15 out of 620 is 1 out of 41.333, or about a 2.4% of non-compliance for the registry. And 3 out of 620 is five times LESS, or less than 0.5% recidivism rate if convicted! This should be communicated to the press, not that they’d do anything about it.

I sent a comment to the news director. I suggest that everyone do that. Education of the ignorant happens only incrementally. It may fall on deaf ears–or more precisely, blind eyes–but my comments follow below.

Saturday must have been a slow news day in Las Vegas. Martha Cruz reported a story with the headline, “Sex Offender compliance checks conducted, 18 arrests made.” Misdirected headlines such as this perpetuate the myth that persons on the sex offense registry represent some heightened danger to society. The opposite is true. Those formerly convicted of a sex offense re-offend at a much lower rate than persons in any other genre of crime – except for murder.

This assertion is even indicated in your article. Of the 620 persons contacted, 18 arrests were made. Of those 15 were arrested for some technical violation of registration requirements, not for another sex offense nor even another crime. The remaining 3 had outstanding warrants, which could have been served by two officers. I won’t insult you by doing the arithmetic for you. However it is obvious that this huge waste of police time and money resulted in few arrests, and did nothing to contribute to public safety.

I suspect you won’t have the journalistic courage to report on the true implications of sex offense registries. The real newsworthy event of the last two weeks was the new Model Penal Code (MPC) approved by the American Law Institute with recommendations for these registries. The old media mantra was “if it bleeds, it leads.” That has morphed into “if it sizzles, it sells.” There is little sizzle but much truth in the new MPC.

Vertitas.

Two thoughts:

  1. Why wait for a (publicized) compliance sweep to serve the 3 outstanding warrants?
  1. What specifically were the technical violations of the other 15 arrests? Guessing along the lines of not reporting an email address last used in 2002, not reporting a relative’s vehicle, or eating brown M&Ms on even numbered days in odd numbered months during the last leap year. Odds are, listing the specific violations would make most people say, “So what?”

Assessing Collateral Consequences Accompanying Sex Offender Registration Registration MiKayla Brooke Charles Eastern Kentucky University

Sex Offenders are often the most feared group of offenders.In response to this fear, sex offender registries were created as a method for monitoring convicted offenders and for providing communities with a sense of security by publicizing information about potential predators nearby.The underlying questions arewhether or not notification and registration laws actually reduce crime and make the community safer. According to the literature, and to the current study, they do not. However, community safety and recidivism rates are not the only factors that pose concern attributed to registration and notification. Researchers alike have argued that these practices are a violation of human rights and the stigma surrounding the label infringes upon the lives of offenders and their family. Therefore, collateral consequences experienced by both offenders and by third parties are a common occurrence. In the current study, nine common themes were identified: impact on employment; impact on housing; perceptions of the registry; mental and emotional health; denial of service excluding housing and employment; impact on families; impact on other relationships; support networks; and vituperative attacks. The same nine themes were used to assess family members. Through each of these themes, an array of collateral consequences wereidentified that range in severity. In the discussion and conclusion section, reintegration difficulty, myths surrounding stranger danger, and ways in which social capital can be gained are discussed.

The electronic dependant police state Will go to any lengths to avoid defunding. Imagine how these activities boost public perception and opinion concerning the police state’s efficacy in crime prevention utilizing registry database. The police state advanced the prophylactic qualities of database use (recidivism) when in fact more crime (lawlessness) resulted in the system as the database driven infrastructure was promulgated.

The more you rely on the database driven infrastructure the more vulnerable your personal sovereignty (human independence) diminishes.

With all due respect, isn’t it time to learn a new song?

Not declaring anything new. Ask Asimov.

Ya know… I really shouldn’t have to go out of my way to find out this took place in Las Vegas. Just saying.

three arrests were made for outstanding arrest warrants related to current alleged sex crime investigations.

Why did it take a compliance check to find these three people? I thought one of the touted purposes of the registry was so LE could easily find the perpetrators of sex offenses. Clearly they knew who they were, since there were warrants out and they were registered. No matter how hard they try to lie, they always expose the truth. Registries aren’t about catching criminals; they’re about continued punishment and harassment.

Exactly.

I always find it quite insane that they like to combine serving warrants with these PR ratings sweeps. If you have a warrant for a person, surely that person is extremely armed and dangerous, right? Especially if the warrant is for one of “them thar sexy offenders”!! So stop f’ing around, do your job for a change, serve the warrant and “protect” the public. Protecting the public is your key lie. Most of the public is as dumb as dumb LE thinks they are, but not everyone is.

They wait to serve warrants and arrest people for various crimes because they want to conflate the issue with the dumb public. They want the public to believe that seeing a person at a home where the person told you they live is an important public safety feature and it is correlated to crimes!! So they mix it all together to confuse the issue. No one with a brain thinks that visiting someone who has been living lawfully in the public for a decade improves public safety in any way. Personally, I’m 100% sure it decreases public safety. LE loves that also. To them, all crime is good crime. Great for business.

So it all make sense now. My hubby got a call from a detective in LV screaming at him that he wasn’t in compliance. We live in another town now and he does everything he is supposed to do. Once my hubby told him to contact our lawyer he litteraly screamed at him for like a min and then hung up on him!!!!

You sure it was a real detective? Usually law enforcement won’t call. They’ll just show up at your door en masse.

Yea it was a real detective. He has spoken to our lawyer now. They hate it when you have a good lawyer lol

Why can’t this happen to me?! I love yelling at dumb people. Especially pigs. But I never answer my phone unless I know who is calling.

@Feeling sad:
Your hubby wasted too much time on the jerk. HE should have been the one to hang up on the “detective.”

So I’m looking for advice, or any helpful feedback, especially from anyone from Nevada. Or Janice, for that matter.

I left northern NV in late 2018 after AB579 went into effect. I moved to a state where I’m not on the public registry and solely for that reason. However…I’m finding I really don’t like it in my new state for numerous reasons, and I’m several hours further away from the bulk of my immediate family and support network. I’m actually planning to move back because I’m not sure leaving was worth it. I’ll boil my comment down to this:

1.) Where I am now, tiers 1 and 2 aren’t public, but it’s a lifetime registry state.

2.) In NV, I’m tier 2, but there is a 25 year registration period, meaning I’d come off in about 10 years – If I understand correctly, that 25 year clock starts when I first started registering in my original state (CA) almost 15 years ago, meaning I’d have about 10 years left.

Not a fun choice to make. But I’ve decided not to let the registry dictate my life, and live where I want. What would you do?

@Tired of this:
IMO, it boils down to privacy (no public registry) versus proximity (family, etc.). Only you can determine which is more valuable to you, which gives you more comfort, more security, more work opportunities, and/or more support.

I recently obtained a COR and ordered off the registry. I called both locations where I register and the clerks informed me my registration was terminated! I’ve also been sent a letter via the DOJ confirming this. OC visited me last year (we did phone registration) and they wanted to come into my home so I could sign the document? I signed it on my car hood! I’ve never been called by any deputy or LE agency. I’ll smile if the idiots come to my door by accident! I was accidentally (by law, I was considered an other/not posted) posted on the Megan’s Law website for 2 days when it was initially started. I’ll rip a civil lawsuit! Sending everyone the best!

In NV????

Heh… Only 18 arrests?
