On Sunday evening October 21, 2013 the Scott County Sex Offender Task Force began home compliance checks for all Scott County registered sex offenders. The purpose of the home checks was to verify that the offender resided at the address listed on the Iowa Sex Offender Registry and that all registry requirements were being complied with.

The compliance checks continued throughout the week and were completed the afternoon of Wednesday, October 23, 2013. The following are results of the home compliance checks:

Total number of offenders checked: 317

Total number of offenders who’s residency was compliant: 301 (95%)

Total number of follow-up investigations needed to be completed: 16

Total number of arrests for registry and non-registry violations: 7

The follow-up investigations will determine if the offender resides at the registered address they have provided. Those found to be non-compliant will result in an arrest warrant being issued for their arrest.

The agencies that participated in the home compliance checks included the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, Bettendorf and Davenport Police Departments, Division of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Department of Correctional Services (DOC), U.S. Federal Probation and Parole Office, Department of Human Services (DHS), Scott County Attorney’s Office and the Department of Public Safety Iowa Sex Offender Registry.
