FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Subject: Fullerton PD’s Tracking and Enforcement of Sex Registrants
Date: February 8, 2017
Contact: Sergeant Jon Radus firstname.lastname@example.org
On February 7th, 2017, the Fullerton City Council repealed Fullerton’s Municipal Code section which set forth certain sex offender residency restrictions within the City of Fullerton due to pending litigation that found the Municipal Code section to be unconstitutional.
That said, California Penal Code Section 3003.5, which sets forth residency restrictions and prohibits sex offenders from residing within 2,000 feet of any public or private school, or park where children regularly gather, remains steadfastly in place.
The Fullerton Police Department would like to assure the public that we will continue to vigorously enforce, supervise, monitor and maintain the registration requirements on the current and future registered sex offenders that reside in the City of Fullerton.
Fullerton Police Detectives and Specialized Enforcement Units are in constant communication with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, and through our local, state and federal law enforcement partnerships, we will continue to keep our children, schools, parks and community safe.
Anyone with information regarding sex offenders and compliance issues with PC 290 (sex registrant requirements) is urged to contact Fullerton Police Sergeant John Ema at (714) 738-6580. Those wishing to provide information anonymously can call Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1(855) TIP-OCCS or go to www.occrimestoppers.org.
