Sexual offenders and predators are required to register either two or four times a year based on their offense which allows the unit to see them at least six to eight times every year. Any violations or complaints received by the MCSO are investigated by the unit, and we also work to educate the public on sexual offenders by hosting community presentations and law enforcement training. We have provided several links to assist you in understanding Florida sexual offender and predator laws and responsibilities. We also have several agency links listed to aide you in determining if you have a sexual offender or predator residing in your neighborhood.

When a sexual offender or sexual predator is released from incarceration, moves into Collier County or changes their address, either permanently or temporarily five days consecutively or five days aggregately in a year , there are several activities that take place. They are then required to re-register during the month of their birthday, and then again either in three or six months, depending upon their conviction. In addition, they must sign a document indicating that they understand their limitations as outlined in Florida statutes. These notifications may include the following: A bulletin depicting the predator, with a current address that is distributed to all school resource officers and district patrol deputies. A public notice describing the predator, with a photo, is distributed to all local news media indicating the arrival or change of address of the sexual predator; for dissemination.
