WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Federal, state and local authorities have been working in Williams County this week to locate registered sex offenders and check them for compliance.

The U.S. Marshals Service says the multi-agency effort was the first of its kind in the county, involving the Marshals Service, the Williams, Cass and Grand Forks county sheriff's offices, the Williston Police Department and North Dakota Probation and Parole.

The Marshals Service says the number of registered offenders in Williams County has nearly tripled since 2010.

The effort found that 95 offenders are in compliance, two are in jail, two are dead and 25 are not in compliance. The Marshals Service says five of the offenders found not in compliance were referred for prosecution, while the other 20 cases will be investigated.
