Tracking sexual offenders/predators in the community

Florida Keys residents may be unaware of the resources available to them regarding information on sexual offenders and predators who reside in our community.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement keeps a digital database of all sexual offenders and predators in the state that can be easily accessed at www.fdle.state.fl.us

Sexual offenders and predators can also be found on the Sheriff’s Office phone app, which is available at the Apple App Store and Google Play by searching Monroe County Sheriffs Office.

“I want to remind the community of the resources available to them regarding these individuals,” said Sheriff Rick Ramsay. “Public safety will always be my number one concern and that means reminding the public they have the legal right to know where sexual offenders may be living.”

The FDLE website is easiest way for the public to find offenders or predators. The database allows users to search by name or by address. The database includes their specific crimes and in what county they occurred. It also has alerts and updates on absconded offenders.
