For Immediate Release
October 27, 2023
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) is reminding citizens to download the FDLE 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 app.
Make trick or treating safer using the FDLE mobile app to search for registered sexual offenders/predators by name, address, or those residing near your current location. Have access to sexual offender/predator registry information on-the-go while your family goes door-to-door.
The app is useful throughout the year. Users can 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 the free “FDLE Mobile App” in the Google Play store and in Apple's App Store.
Citizens can also access Florida’s Sex Offender Registry online at
The FDLE mobile app should never be used as an emergency app because it is not monitored 24/7.  In an emergency situation, please call 911.
