(CLINTON COUNTY, Mo.) Officers in Clinton County conducted a massive sweep checking to see that sex offenders are living where they should be.

Officers with the Clinton County Sheriff's Office along with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies checked on 55 sex offenders as part of "Operation Child Safe."

Authorities said 23 offenders were found to be non-compliant. The operation also led to the investigation of one sex offender who crossed state lines and failed to register in the new jurisdiction.

"For those convicted sex offenders in Clinton County who choose not to obey the laws, we have zero tolerance," Clinton County Sheriff Larry Fish said. "This compliance sweep demonstrates the commitment this office has to hold those convicted sex offenders accountable and also reaffirming our dedication and obligation to keeping Clinton County safe."

Registered sex offenders must report any change in address or employment to authorities and cannot live within 1,000 feet of a school or licensed day care.
