What do I need to register as a sexual offender or sexual predator?

WHAT ARE THE BASIC REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SEX OFFENDERS AND PREDATORS, INCLUDING JUVENILE OFFENDERS?

Sexual offenders must complete a registration form at their county sheriff's office either twice a year (birth month and every 6th month thereafter) or four times a year (birth month and every 3rd month thereafter) depending upon their offense. For a list of qualifying offenses for quarterly registration please refer to Florida Statute 943.0435(14)(b).

Sexual predators, some sexual offenders, and juvenile sexual offenders must report four times a year (birth month and every 3rd month thereafter).

Sexual offenders/predators must update their driver license or identification card within 48 hours after any change to their residence (permanent, temporary, or transient) or name.

Sexual offenders/predators MUST maintain registration for the duration of their life.

All qualifying sexual offenders, sexual predators, and juvenile sexual offenders will be listed on the public registry website.

HOW OFTEN IS THE FLORIDA SEXUAL OFFENDER AND PREDATOR REGISTRY UPDATED?

 

The public registry website is updated on a "real-time", continuous basis as new information is received from FDLE's criminal justice partner agencies. 

 

DO JUVENILE SEX OFFENDERS AND PREDATORS HAVE TO REGISTER AS WELL?

 

Juvenile sexual offenders are required to register in Florida if he/she:

Has been convicted as an adult for a qualifying sexual offense and meets the criteria in Florida Statute 943.0435 or 775.21 to register as a sexual offender or predator;

OR
