I apologize for any confusion -Mary
Now that the 2015 Report from the Virginia State Police (VSP) on Monitoring Sex Offenders is available I decided to take some data from it that I’ve never broken down previously and chart it for the last 7 years.
Every time an RSO moves, loses/changes jobs, gets a new phone number (home, work, cell), a new email address (personal, work), enrolls in school, buys or sells a vehicle, etc that information must be updated in-person (there is no electronic system) with the VSP during operating/business hours (Mon-Fri 8:30am - 4pm no evenings, no weekends and no holidays) most likely missing work to remain compliant and avoid a felony.
A VSP Employee/Trooper must take the information from the RSO and fill out a paper form (not electronic), then the paper form is sent to the VSP Headquarters and the changes are entered into the VSP database by another VSP Employee/Trooper and if the changes (like residence, employment or email) requires confirmation another VSP Employee/Trooper must go in-person to verify or send out an email to confirm.
The numbers that are being tracked by the VSP are right here….
