Operation Clean Sweep Press Release
On October 27th 2014 the Streator Police Department, with assistance from the LaSalle County Sheriff's Office, Illinois State Police (District 17) and Illinois Department of Corrections Sex Offender Parole Division, conducted Operation Clean Sweep.
The purpose of the operation was: to complete a physical address check on all registered sex offenders and violent offenders in the Streator area, to check for violations of the sex offender and violent offender registration act, and violations of the Adam Walsh Child Safety Act.
The operation resulted in the opening of several cases for: failure to register change of address, failure to register employment, and a violation of the Adam Walsh Child Safety Act. Once the case investigations are completed for the violations of the sex offender registration act they will be sent to the LaSalle County State's Attorney's Office for review of charges. The case for the violation of the Adam Walsh Child Safety Act will be sent to the U.S. Marshals Office for review of possible federal charges upon its completion.
The Streator Police Department wants the public to know that it has increased its efforts to protect our citizens from sex offenders and violent offenders. The department implemented the Offender Watch Registration Program. This program helps our department and the public in tracking our offenders. The program has a public e-mail notification system feature that allows members of the public know when offenders move into the area, a public mapping system for locating offender’s addresses, and e-mail notification system where members of the public can submit information about sex offenders to our department.
This year the department continued our commitment to the community’s safety by increasing our annual physical address checks to at least 2 times per year. The State of Illinois only requires 1 physical address check per year. The department also started a Community Safety Campaign for Halloween through the Offender Watch System Program. The department partnered with local schools, and large day care providers to send a safety tip flyer home with the children during the week of Halloween. The flyer also included information on how to access the public web page of our department’s Offender Watch site, information on how to locate or map offenders, and information on how to sign up for e-mail notifications.
The department is requesting the public’s assistance in the tracking and monitoring of our department’s sex offenders and violent offenders by signing up for community e-mail alert system and submitting any tips that they might have about the offenders to our department.
