Registered Sex Offenders

Most people convicted of Sex crimes as well as Sexual Battery are required to register as a sex offender under Florida law. Sex offenders are posted on the FDLE website and are accessible to the public.

In addition, a letter may be sent to the people who live in sex offender's community advising them that a sex offender lives in their neighborhood, and giving them access to the name and address of these sex offenders.
