Seneca County Sheriff’s Office does compliance check on area sex offenders

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) recently paid visits to the homes of 70 registered sex offenders in order to confirm their addresses.

During a several-day period in March, SCSO investigators went to sex offenders’ address on record. A Level 2 offender from Ovid was arrested for allegedly failing to provide his address.

Lieutenant Tim Thompson, who oversee the sheriff’s office division of criminal investigation, said this, according to Finger Lakes Times: “This sex offender compliance detail was done in addition to regular compliance duties. Sex offenders routinely come to the sheriff’s office to verify and update their status. Addresses are routinely checked by investigators, but details of this size are organized and executed from time to time. The number of sex offenders residing in Seneca County obviously fluctuates.”
