Sex Offenders/Predators

In accordance with state statutes, registered sexual predators and sexual offenders must register with the Department of Law Enforcement.  Convicted sex offenders from out of state must register in Florida within 48 hours of establishing residence.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has set a web site for interested parties to search their database.  This database may be used to find sex offenders and predators by either name, address, city, county, or zip code.  That site is:

FDLE has also established a toll-free number (1-888-FL-PREDATOR) or (1-888-357-7332) that allows the public to request information about Sexual Predators and Sex Offenders living in their communities and around the state.  Requests may be made between the hours of 8am and 7pm, Monday through Friday.
