DPS reports compliance check of sex offenders in Hunt, three other counties

GREENVILLE — Tonight, the Texas Department of Public Safety announced it had conducted a compliance check this week of sex offenders in a four-county area of North Texas, including Hunt County.

The following is the announcement released by the agency:

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) today announced the results of a joint effort by DPS Criminal Investigations Division agents and the U.S. Marshals Service to help ensure sex offender registration compliance. The three-day effort, conducted from November 5 – 7, focused on registered sex offenders in Fannin, Grayson, Hunt and Cooke counties. 

During the three-day compliance check, approximately two dozen DPS Criminal Investigations Division (CID) agents and U.S. Marshals Service personnel conducted door-to-door visits to make sure 52 sex offenders were in compliance with current registration laws and requirements,  of which 9 were deemed out of compliance. DPS will consult with the local registering law enforcement agency, and charges may be filed depending on the outcome of the investigations.

DPS CID agents periodically perform random compliance checks across the state with the cooperation of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
