LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Law enforcement agencies across Michigan are conducting their ninth annual statewide sex offender sweep.
Operation Verify runs through Oct. 30.
The Michigan Sex Offenders Registration Act requires registered sex offenders to regularly report to their local law enforcement agency, sheriff's office or nearest state police post to verify their address.
All registered sex offenders must also report a change of name, address, employment, campus enrollment, Internet identifiers and vehicle within three business days of any change. Failure to do so is a four-year felony.
As of Oct. 1, there were 40,155 offenders on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry with 37,261 in compliance with the registry's requirements.
