OPERATION  T. N. T. A SUCCESS

 

Kaufman, Texas – “The United States Marshals Sex Offender Investigations Branch and members of the United States Marshals Service Dallas Fort Worth Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (DFW FAST), conducted a two day operation on April 20-21, 2010, “Operation T.N.T. “(targeting neighborhood threats), with the goal of ensuring state registration requirements for convicted sex offenders in the cities of Terrell, Forney, and Kaufman.  Officers from the United States Marshals Service, United States Social Security Administration, Terrell Police Department, Forney Police Department, Kaufman Police Department, Crandall Police Department, Greenville Police Department, Kaufman County Sheriff, and the Kaufman County District Attorney, targeted 40 registered sex offenders and conducted compliance checks at their registered address of record.  Of the 40, only 4 were found to be non-compliant and charges for failure to register and comply with registration laws are pending on these 4.  Under the Adam Walsh Child and Safety Protection Act, the United States Marshals Service has been tasked with coordinating efforts with state, county, and local law enforcement agencies in an effort to ensure that all registered sex offenders comply with state registration requirements, and assist with locating and arresting those individuals who are in violation.  The Adam Walsh Act also includes authority to prosecute these individuals in federal court under specific guidelines.  According to DFW FAST Supervisor David Travis, “Efforts will continue with state, county, and local agencies to ensure full compliance with registered sex offenders and state sex offender laws, and to respond with all resources available to prosecute those who fail to comply.”
