On Thursday March 27, 2014 The Ralls County Sheriff’s Office in cooperation with the United States Marshal Service conducted a county wide operation to verify the location of registered sex offenders.

At approximately 8:00 am law enforcement officers from both the Ralls County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshal Service went to the residences of approximately 28 registered sex offenders residing within the county. 

As a result of the operation;
  • One sex offender was confirmed to have died recently
  • One sex offender was found to be not in compliance with the requirements of being a registered sex offender
  • One residence where a sex offender resides resulted in a referral to the Missouri Division of Family Services due to the living conditions of a child inside the residence.
  • Six registered sex offenders will require follow up investigations to determine if they are in full compliance with the requirements of being a registered sex offender

All of the remaining registered sex offenders were found to be in compliance.
