Sex Offender Email Alerts
Florida Residents Notified By Email of Resident Sex Offenders -
Parents for Megan’s Law (PFML), a national not-for-profit community and victims’ rights organization, announced today that they have launched a sex offender email alert program for Florida residents. Community members who sign-up will receive sex offender email alerts at no cost.
The sex offender email alert program is funded by the United States Justice Department. Parents and community members are supported by the agency’s National Megan’s Law Helpline (888) ASK-PFML where they can learn about responsible use of information and be educated about sexual abuse/abduction prevention and Internet Safety. The agency’s Sex Offender Registration Tips (SORT) Program provides the public an opportunity to report registrants who are failing to comply with registration requirements, employment or supervision restrictions or who are in positions of trust where they can access children. SORT reports can be made via the Helpline or website. SORT Analysts work collaboratively with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to facilitate the appropriate follow-up action.
Registering For Sex Offender Email Alerts is Fast and Easy:
Email alerts will be sent to you containing a link to view important information about the offender. Additional searches can be done across the state and nation. The website has valuable prevention information and services available for crime victims.
Registration and support questions can be directed to the National Megan’s Law Helpline:
