Michigan State Police troopers will conduct a statewide sweep of sex offenders accused of violating requirements of the sex offender registry by not reporting address changes on time.
Operation Verify will be held Oct. 18-29 and target as many as 3,400 violators who are not in compliance with the Michigan Sex Offender Registry.
Anyone on the registry who's been convicted of sex-crime felonies must verify their addresses quarterly with local police agencies and within 10 days of moving.
State police officials said in a statement Thursday the sweep will follow the Oct. 1-15 quarterly verification period.
Michigan has about 46,400 people on the sex offender registry, and nearly 43,000 are compliant.
Penalties range from 93 days in jail to four years in prison.
