Federal and state laws require a person designated as a “sexual predator or offender” to register with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). FDLE is required to notify the local law enforcement agency where the registrant resides, attends or is employed by an institution of higher learning.
Students may access information about sexual predators/offenders by accessing the FDLE website at: http://offender.fdle.state.fl.us/offender/homepage.do;jsessionid=Tk3TLcs5p7CsfalR11HdZA__
Toll Free Number
FDLE has also established a toll-free number (1-888-FL-PREDATOR) or (1-888-357-7332) that allows the public to request information about Sexual Predators and Sex Offenders living in their communities and around the state. Requests may be made between the hours of 8am and 7pm, Monday through Friday.
Being aware and informed is one of the best ways to avoid becoming vulnerable to a crime. Informational brochures and assistance are available through the HCC Security Office and each campus Dean of Student Services.
