Office of the Attorney General
SAN DIEGO -- Attorney General Edmund G. Brown, Jr. announced today the successful completion of "Operation Watchdog," an unprecedented law enforcement sweep to verify that 300 registered sex offenders in San Diego are obeying the law and living at the address they have reported to authorities. Nine arrests were made.
"Because of sex offenders' propensity to reoffend, keeping tabs on them is crucial to protecting the public," Brown said. "As in many things, the price of safety is constant vigilance, and my office is committed to providing that."
