Month-Long Proactive Checks on Sex Predators, Offenders Lead to 24 Arrests

Sheriff’s detectives and deputies arrested 24 people for failing to properly register as sexual offenders or sexual predators during a proactive month-long sweep throughout Volusia County.

Members of our Career Criminal Unit conducted numerous interviews and surveillance, both daytime and at night, throughout April as part of our countywide investigation. They checked individuals’ homes, workplaces and campsites in this effort, known as Operation Endgame.

During this investigation, 195 sex offenders or predators were checked to make sure they had properly registered and are following laws that govern them. Of those checked, 162 were found to be in compliance. Three individuals were arrested on unrelated warrants and several warrant requests were filed with the State Attorney’s Office for possible future arrests.

There are 1,067 sex offenders or predators registered as living in Volusia County.

Florida law requires individuals who have been convicted of sex offenses and classified as sexual offenders or sexual predators to register in person with the sheriff’s office in the county where they live. More information:
