SAIU is organized as follows: General Sex Crimes Detail Work consists of investigations of cases one typically thinks of as sex crimes. These include child molests, rapes, unlawful sexual intercourse and indecent exposure cases, among the broader range of sexually-oriented offenses.
Ours is one of five departments in the state acting as a lead agency of surrounding law enforcement organizations in the national Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Those include educating the public—and specifically children and their parents—on internet safety, training investigators of other agencies, pursuing leads reported through a national Cybertip clearing house, and serving as a resource to other agencies in this specialized area of investigation.
This detail is also responsible for investigating child molest cases involving institutional settings, such as schools and sports teams. At present, staffing consists of three police officer-rank computer forensic examiners.
Sex Offender Registration Enforcement Team Team California for more than 50 years has required dangerous sex offenders to register with their local law enforcement agencies. However, information on the whereabouts of these sex offenders was not available to the public until the implementation of the Child Molester Identification Line in July Megan's Law is named after seven-year-old Megan Kanka, a New Jersey girl who was raped and killed by a known child molester who had moved across the street from the family without their knowledge.
In the wake of the tragedy, the Kanka's sought to have local communities warned about sex offenders in the area. Now, California's Megan's Law arms the public with certain information on the whereabouts of dangerous sex offenders so those members of our local communities may protect themselves and their children. The law also authorizes local law enforcement to notify the public about high-risk and serious sex offenders who reside in, are employed in, or frequent the community.
When was the program created and why? The Team consists of one supervisor, four detectives, one administrative detective and one full time Crime Data Specialist.
The team is committed to ensuring sex registrants living within San Jose are in compliance and take enforcement actions on those that are failing to comply. California's Megan's Law requires that certain information about sex offenders be made available upon request to members of the public, so that the public is better prepared to protect themselves and their children.
The intent of this information s to empower citizens with data to assist them in making informed decisions regarding personal and family safety. Civil misuse of this information may subject the person to civil damages. Anyone who uses this information contained in this database to commit a criminal act against another is subject to criminal prosecution. The California State Attorney General's Office maintains a Megan's Law Website where you can look up and report information about registered sex offenders.
