Convicted felons, convicted sexual offenders and convicted sexual predators are required to register with the sheriff’s office within 48 hours after entering Clay County pursuant to Florida State Statutes.
Appropriate registration of sexual offenders, sexual predators and career offenders is the responsibility of the Special Victims Section (SVS) in the Detective Division.
SVS staff will process the initial registration and enter the offender/predator information into the database. SVS will then direct the offender/predator to the Clay County Detention Facility to be fingerprinted. Our agency has an established policy in relation to career offender, sexual offender and sexual predator registration, re-registration and community notifications. These policies and procedures are in compliance with the Florida Public Safety Information Act of 1997 and in conjunction with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).
Through FDLE’s website, a quick and accurate search can be conducted that will let you determine if any registered sexual offenders or sexual predators are living at a residence in your area.
