Yolo County DA to hold public briefing on sex offender sweep

A public briefing regarding a two-day sex-offender sweep will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Yolo County District Attorney's Office, 301 Second St., Woodland.

District Attorney Jeff Reisig, along with other county, local and state law enforcement officials, will discuss the results of "Operation Vigilance," a compliance and enforcement check of Yolo County's registered sex offenders.

During the past two days, 130 law enforcement officers from agencies in Yolo County - as well as the FBI, California Highway Patrol and State Parole - conducted sex offender compliance checks in Davis, Woodland, West Sacramento, Winters, Capay, Esparto and Dunnigan, according to a District Attorney's Office news release. Officials said 436 registered sex offenders live in Yolo County. Most were convicted of rape, child molestation or possession of child pornography.

In addition to making home visits and face-to-face contact with registered sex offenders, Operation Vigilance law enforcement officers targeted offenders on probation and parole by conducting searches using specialized computer software that simplifies the analysis of computer and other digital storage devices. Computer forensic specialists from the District Attorney's Office, the Sacramento FBI field office and the CHP worked together on the specialized searches.

The operation was coordinated by the Yolo County District Attorney's Child Sexual Predator Unit, a federally funded division that provides hi-tech forensic service to all Yolo County law enforcement agencies. The goal, officials said, is to ensure that sex offenders living in Yolo County are monitored and to deter them from committing new offenses.
