As the number of registered sex offenders is steadily rising all over the nation, the number is dramatically increasing in Florida. According to Legislature’s Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability the number of registered sex offenders has risen over 23 percent in the last five years. They last reported that there were 23,813 registered sex offenders in 2012.
Though law enforcement has improved upon tracking registered offenders by cutting down the number of unknown locations in half within the last five years, there is still roughly under a thousand predators that are still unaccounted for. This is because of homelessness and complication with offenders attaining a registered State ID or driver’s licenses.
