Parents who want to help protect their kids from dangers that may lurk in their neighborhoods will find the Florida Department of Law Enforcement offers a handy, searchable database on its website. That database contains the names, photos, offenses and last known addresses of the state’s registered sexual offenders and predators.Sexual offenders are classified by the state as those who have been convicted of sexual misconduct in the past. That misconduct may include a spectrum of offenses ranging from computer pornography and video voyeurism to sexual battery. Sexual predators are classified as those who have been convicted of a sexually violent offense who have also been designated through a written court to be sexual predators, according to the FDLE website.Like most of Florida, the Apopka area is home to hundreds of registered sexual offenders and predators, according to FDLE records.FDLE’s Neighborhood Search allows users to enter any address in Florida and search the Florida Sexual Offender/Predator Registry for any registered sexual offender or predator living within a 1 to 5 mile radius of the address entered by the user. You can also open a map of the search results by clicking the “Display Results in Map” linkThe Apopka Voice used the database to search the Apopka Community to determine the number of offenders found within a 5-mile radius of Apopka City Hall (120 East Main Street).Here are the results:FDLE records show 288 offenders and predators living within a 5-mile radius of Apopka City Hall.
