After checking on 123 registered sex offenders in Walworth County, police agencies reported finding no violations during the 10th annual Operation Trick or Treat compliance checks.

Officers from the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office; police departments in the cities of Delavan, Elkhorn, Lake Geneva and Whitewater and the towns of Delavan, Bloomfield and Geneva; and probation and parole officials conducted the checks between Oct. 27 and 31, according to a joint news release from the sheriff’s office and the state Department of Corrections.

Last year, police agencies conducted 106 checks, resulting in four arrests on charges of violating conditions of release, according to the news release.

“We are pleased our proactive efforts have shown no violations this year,” the release states.
