Predator & Offender Notifications

Polk County uses Alert Polk to notify citizens when a registered sexual predator relocates, per the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. You don't have to live in the county to register. Click here to subscribe.

The Alert Polk notifications will be sent directly to your home phone, cell phone, or email address. When you register, please be aware that phone carrier charges may apply for all alert messages and data. You will only receive alerts that affect the address you register.

Below is a list of the predator address relocations that have been sent out via Alert Polk.


You can also search the FDLE website, or visit the Offender Watch page (see below) to search for registered offenders and predators in Florida, and Polk County.
