Port Huron Police Officers, along with Michigan State Police troopers from the Lapeer Post, United States Marshal Service, St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department, Port Huron PD/St. Clair County Major Crimes Unit, Almont Police Department, Clay Township Police Department and Lapeer Police Department recently completed a three-day random residential verification sweep of 750 convicted sex offenders in St. Clair and Lapeer counties. The Michigan Sex Offenders Registration Act requires registered sex offenders to regularly report to their local law enforcement agency, sheriff’s office, or nearest state police post to verify their address. All registered sex offenders must also report a change of name, address, employment, campus enrollment, internet identifiers and vehicle within three business days of any change. Failure to do so is four-year felony. Overall the effort resulted in the discovery of 40 sex offender violations in both counties. Eleven arrests were made by the end of the sweep on various charges including weapons offenses, obstruction of justice, controlled substances, and failure to appear on court order. Locally, 317 sex offender residence checks were conducted resulting in 22 warrant requests and 7 arrests. The Port Huron Police Department takes sex offender registry very seriously and will continue to constantly monitor and follow-up on sex offender complaints and compliance. Those found violating the Registration Act will be arrested. The Public Sex Offender Registry can be viewed via the Internet at http://www.mipsor.state.mi.us.
