Oregon State Police are in the middle of a compliance sweep of local sex offenders in Deschutes County, where authorities already have found 45 of 581 registered offenders out of compliance.
The sweep kicked off Friday and is expected to continue through next week, said State Police Sgt. Don Wagner.
Of the 45 sex offenders found out of compliance with registration requirements so far, 16 had active arrest warrants, seven were in custody on new charges, and 22 allegedly failing to register properly, Wagner said.
State Police currently operate and maintain a reporting database for the state's registered sex offenders. A list of offenders, both on and off supervision, is available by calling the Oregon State Police at (503) 378-3725 Ext. 44429. A list request can be sent by email to SexOffenders.Questions@state.or.us
