Following an operation to ensure sex offenders were compliant with their sex offender registration, LVMPD and its Sex Offender Apprehension Team, working with various other agencies, detained 32 sex offenders.
Operation Scarecrow was a multi-agency, in-person operation that took place from October 24 to October 28.
The operation’s purpose was to guarantee that sex offenders in Clark County were up to date on their sex offender registration.
Police said that at the end of the operation, 2,356 sex offenders had been notified and 32 had been detained on a variety of crimes. Among the charges were failure to comply with sex offender registration regulations, sexual assault, and breach of probation.
