Police in Melvindale are cracking down on sex offenders to ensure they are in compliance with sex offender registration laws. Any sex offenders found not in compliance with the law will face additional charges, as police are operating under a zero-tolerance policy.
All sex offenders are required to register their address with local law enforcement agents, and must notify law enforcement when they move or change residences. There are 24 registered sex offenders in the city of Melvindale, and any offender who has moved without notifying the police, or who has failed to register altogether will face felony charges. The police will also be checking to ensure the offenders are in compliance with any other orders the judge issued, such as not living within a certain distance of school, not coming into contact with children, etc.
As a result of the checks, police discovered that three of the city’s sex offenders have moved without notifying the police. Felony arrest warrants have been issued.
