Special Vitctims Unit
The Special Victims Unit was developed in late 2000 and is responsible for the investigation of all crimes involving elder abuse,
domestic violence, sex crimes, crimes against children and the sexual offender registration program. The warrant extradition
officers are also assigned to this unit.
A Community Service Officer and an Officer coordinate the sexual offender registration program. There are over 1,400 sexual
offenders who are required to register in Stanislaus County. Over 550 of these live in the city limits of Modesto. We are
proud of the fact that we have a 90% compliance rate. They also coordinate the update and release of sexual offender registration
information to the public through use of the Megan's Law computer.
