FDLE shares Halloween safety tips and tools

Press release from Florida Department of Law Enforcement

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – FDLE’s Florida Fusion Center shares Halloween safety tips with families, and FDLE reminds citizens to download the FDLE Mobile 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 mobile app.  The app makes it easy for citizens to see where sexual offenders have registered a residential address in Florida. 

FDLE Commissioner Mark Glass said, “I hope all parents will download the free FDLE mobile app before Halloween and use it to help plan their trick-or-treating routes. Our app has tools and informational resources parents can use every day to help keep their families safe and to report suspicious activity.”

The app also allows users to search active AMBER, Missing Child, Purple, and Silver Alerts, purchase a Florida criminal history, search wanted persons or unsolved Florida cases, and submit a tip about suspicious activity.

Search for “FDLE Mobile App” to download it for free from the Google Play store or Apple’s App Store.

Citizens can also access Florida’s Sex Offender Registry online at https://offender.fdle.state.fl.us/offender/sops/home.jsf.
