Dozens of law enforcement agencies all over Colorado are searching for the top 100 wanted sex offenders, as part of Operation Shepherd 2009.

Along with trying to track down unregistered sex offenders, the sheriff's office is also checking up on the more than 300 other sex offenders registered in El Paso County.

When sex offenders fail to tell cops where they live, or commit other crimes they could end up on the statewide top 100 most wanted sex offenders.

"The men and women on the top 100, we would consider them dangerous,” said Deputy Teresa Murphy, with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. “They're not doing what they're supposed to do. They're not completing their registrations, they're not checking in with us, we don't know where they are."

In doing the random checks, law enforcement is hoping to dig up any leads that may tell them where these criminals are.

Several of the top 100 wanted sex offenders have been arrested already. And cops are coming up on a lot of leads to find the others.

The sheriff’s office says the majority of registered sex offenders in El Paso County do comply with their rules.

    George Price did not have sex with a child she was 6 months away from being 18 and there was no sex. I just wanted to set the record straight for ted since he obviously didnt watch the whole story. The DA did make a wrongful arrest since this warrant should have never been issued since he already took care of this same issue a little more than a month before this arrest.

    Ohhh poor George Price, everyone has been picking on him. Let's over look the fact that he had sex with a child and didn't register when he was supposed to, even though he knew how to do it for 10 years. Instead, lets blame everyone else like the cops and the DA. If the cops had a warrant it wasn't a wrongful arrest by the way, just so you know. regardless, I bet George doesn't forget to register next time.
