Dodge County Sheriff Pat Ninmann reports that in an ongoing effort to keep registered sex offenders accountable, the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office along with the U.S. Marshals Service conducted compliance checks that began on July seventh. From July seventh through the eleventh, investigators worked hard to verify the residences of 149 sex offenders in Dodge County. Investigators were able to verify the residences of 138 of those sex offenders. Offenders are required to provide current, up-to-date, personal information to include an accurate address and place of employment. Failing to comply with the guidelines of the sex offender registry is a criminal offense. The U.S. Marshals will continue to work with the Sex Offender Registry to verify the residences of those offenders who were unable to be verified during the operation. In the news release Sheriff Ninmann stated, “It is the mission of the Dodge County Sheriff's Office to keep our citizens and children safe. Operation Dodgeball is just one way the Sheriff’s Office is working to hold sex offenders accountable with strict compliance enforcement.
