FALLBROOK – Lt. Phil Brust, commander of the Fallbrook Sheriff’s Substation reported that on Saturday, March 27, beginning at approximately 7 a.m., Detective Dan Laibach and nine members of the Sex Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) task force conducted an audit of the registered sex offenders residing in the Fallbrook command area.
In order to assure registered sex offenders are in compliance with Megan’s Law and their given information is true and current, an annual audit is conducted to determine true compliance through personal contacts at the registered sex offender’s address.
Under the Fallbrook Substation command, there are currently 39 “registered sex offenders.”
In accordance with “Megan’s Law,” each registered sex offender is required to register their place of residence, business and vehicles with the Sheriff’s Department each year within five days of his or her birthday. Any changes or moves must also be reported within five working days of that change.
As a result of this audit, one sex offender was in the process of moving to Imperial County and one sex offender registered as “transient” was found to not have a current cell phone number. Further investigation will be conducted and possible warrants are pending for these individuals.
All but three registered sex offenders were contacted and found to be in compliance.
The last three will be contacted this week by Detective Laibach for verification of compliance.
Additional compliance checks and audits are scheduled for the near future.
