More than 52 arrested in LPD sex offender compliance operation

LUBBOCK, Texas -

From the Lubbock Police Department: 

A four day operation focused on sex offender compliance and outstanding felony warrants ended last Thursday with more than 52 local arrests within Lubbock County. The successful multi-agency enforcement included joint efforts by the United States Marshals Service- North Texas Fugitive Task Force, Lubbock Police Department, Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office, the Criminal Investigations Division of Texas Department of Public Safety, Buffalo Springs Lake Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations.

From Aug. 26 to Aug. 29, three federal agents, 60 state and local sworn law enforcement personnel along with LPD and LSO’s Sex Offender Compliance Registrars participated in the extensive operation.

Law enforcement personnel from the participating agencies made contact with more than 450 registered sex offenders in Lubbock County to check their compliance with state laws. More than 30 investigations were generated for sex offenders who were found to be non-compliant, many of which resulted in an on-view arrest.

In addition to arrest warrants issued for registration violations, the 52 arrests also included suspects who had outstanding warrants related to sexual crimes such as murder, sexual assault or indecency with a child. More arrests are forthcoming as a result of this week’s operation.

This four day joint operation is an example of the dedicated partnership between local, state and federal agencies to ensure local convicted sex offenders are complying with the required restrictions.
