Here is a staggering truth. The state of Florida has more than 76,000 sex offenders and sexual predators recorded in it’s state-wide database.
ABC Action News says the database also states that more than 7,000 of them are living right here in the quiet neighborhoods of Tampa Bay. Hillsborough County alone has 1,945 registered sex offenders living in it. Pinellas County has 1,756 registered sex offenders living in it.
With “back-to-school” on the minds of many, it might be a good idea to check out the location of sex offenders in your neighborhood.
Law requires these offenders to register their permanent address with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, to allow people to form their own risk assessments, based on information of each offenders circumstance and conviction history.
The list below shows the number of sex offenders in each county surrounding Tampa Bay:
