Parents can browse sex offender registry while trick-or-treating using app

FDLE says the app makes it easy for citizens to see where sexual offenders have registered a residential address in Florida.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is reminding citizens that they can download the FDLE Mobile App before Halloween to easily search Florida’s Sex Offender Registry.  

The “Search Sexual Offenders and Predators” button is one of eight FDLE public services featured in the mobile app.  

FDLE says the app makes it easy for citizens to see where sexual offenders have registered a residential address in Florida.

“I hope all parents will download the free app before going trick-or-treating," said FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen. "Our FDLE app has a number of tools and informational resources parents can use every day to help keep their families safe and to report suspicious activity.”

The app also allows users to search active AMBER, Missing Child and Silver Alerts, purchase a Florida criminal history, search wanted persons or unsolved Florida cases and submit a tip about suspicious activity.

Search for “FDLE Mobile App” and download it for free from the Google Play store and from Apple's App Store.
