AND FUGITIVE ROUNDUP

Friday, July 2, 2010— Dozens of sex offenders were arrested after a two-week roundup conducted by a joint county-federal task force, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart announced Friday.  The initiative began the day after National Children’s Day on June 13th .



For two weeks the Cook County Sheriff’s Office partnered with the U.S. Marshals Great Lakes Fugitive Task Force and the Cook County Probation Department on “Operation Children’s Day” to target compliant and non-compliant sex offenders, including fugitives.

The first phase of the roundup took place during the week of June 13th and targeted the 79 registered sex offenders in unincorporated Cook County - ensuring they were adhering to all terms of probation, including computer access and proximity to children.  This compliance initiative was in addition to the yearly check of sex offenders required under state law.   

The second phase of the operation took place during the week of June 20 and involved tracking down 80 non-compliant sex offenders living in suburban Cook County, including some who had warrants out for their arrest.

With summer vacation here, the sheriff’s office recognizes the importance of cracking down on sex offenders to help ensure the public safety. 
 
"We're going to continue to be vigilant about keeping an eye on those who pose a danger to our children," Dart said.  “But I would encourage parents to also do their due diligence and check the state registry to identify sex offenders who might be living in their neighborhoods.”
