Law enforcement sources confirm ... several patrol cars are checking on Sharon's pad throughout the day ... to make sure it remains stalker-free.

As we first reported, Sharon obtained a restraining order yesterday against an "obsessed mentally unstable delusional" man -- who, she claims, broke into her house two weeks ago ... and waited for her to show up.

The man -- named Bradly Gooden -- was placed on a psychiatric hold and released four days ago ... but as of yesterday, he's required to stay at least 100 yards away from Sharon at all times.
