The Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Act
In accordance to 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 created a web tool for interested parties to search their database. This database may be used to find sex offenders and predators by name, address, city, county, or zip code.
