In an effort to ensure sex offender registration compliance, the Texas Department of Public Safety conducted a three-day compliance check this week in Fannin, Grayson, Hunt and Cooke counties.


From Tuesday through Thursday, 24 DPS Criminal Investigations Division agents and U.S. Marshals Service personnel conducted door-to-door visits of 52 sex offenders, according to a written statement from the DPS. Of the sex offenders, nine were found to not be in compliance with current registration laws and requirements. DPS will discuss how to handle the non-compliant sex offenders, and charges may be filed.


The Texas DPS performs random compliance checks like this periodically, they said.
