News Release
Results from Sex Offender Compliance Checks - 02/27/24

Police officers from Tigard and Sherwood recently joined regional partners to conduct sex offender compliance checks across their cities, and the results from the effort are now available.

Held periodically and led by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Apprehension Team (CAT), the purpose behind these checks is for an officer and/or deputy to personally visit the address provided by a registered sex offender to verify that he or she does, in fact, live at the address they have provided to law enforcement. 

Compliance checks were held on Wednesday, February 20th, in Tigard and Sherwood, with the help of deputies from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. The results are as follows:

Of the 134 registered sex offenders living in Tigard as of 2/20/24, checks were conducted on 80 people. 50 of them were verified to be in compliance, meaning investigators confirmed more likely than not that the person is currently living at their reported address. Another 27 were unverified, which may be due to no answer at the door or conflicting information. 3 were verified to not be in compliance and were no longer living at their reported address. Their names and information have been documented for future follow-up.

Of the 37 registered sex offenders living in Sherwood as of 2/20/24, checks were conducted on 33 people. 21 of them were verified to be in compliance, 12 were unverified and 0 were verified to not be in compliance.

These periodic efforts to follow up on information provided by registered sex offenders is a priority in Washington County, where CAT has a goal to verify such information at least on an annual basis. The Tigard and Sherwood Police Departments support this important work and hope to conduct future checks on a more frequent basis.

You can find more information on certain sex offenders who are considered high risk at the Oregon State Police Sex Offender Registry here: https://sexoffenders.oregon.gov/
