MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - U.S. Marshals and local police have been knocking on doors to make sure registered sex offenders live where they say they live.
The Marshals' service has been conducting what it calls "Operation Grand Slam" since late March in Milwaukee County.
Investigators have paid one or more visits to verify the homes of almost 1,450 people who are on the state's sex offender registry. About two-thirds of those residences were verified.
U.S. Marshal Kevin Carr says the remaining offenders might have been at work or some other legitimate location when officers tried visiting them. He said those agents will keep trying.
Carr says those who don't live where they say they live will be further investigated.
