(WFLX) - Florida's number of registered sex offenders rose dramatically in 2012, according to reports from the Orlando Sentinel.
The numbers are growing across the nation. But while the U.S. has seen a 23 percent overall increase in the number of registered sex offenders in the past five years, Florida has seen a whopping 74 percent increase, the report states.
With Halloween trick-or-treating a safety concern for many parents Wednesday night, click the link below to see the locations of every sex offender in your neighborhood.
When you search the state database, you have several options. If you are looking for a particular person, you can type in as much or as little information as you know.
TO VIEW A LIST: In most cases, you will want to do a very broad search. Simply typing your ZIP code into the search tool will give you a list (with photos if they are available) of every registered sex offender who shares your ZIP code.
TO VIEW A MAP: Further down on the database search form, you will find the option to search within a one mile radius of an address you choose. Typing in your address will build a map that pinpoints the home (and in some cases, the work address) of every registered sex offender within a mile of your home.
