Sexual Predator / Offender Tracking Unit


In March of 2000, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office established the Sexual Predator & Offender Tracking Unit (SPOT). The unit is responsible for ensuring registered sexual predators and offenders comply with their conditions of probation and registration requirements within Palm Beach County. The unit also notifies the community of any registered sexual predator living within their neighborhood.

SPOT works closely with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Department of Corrections, Immigration Customs Enforcement, local police municipalities and the PBSO Tactical Unit. This partnership has been successful in tracking sexual offenders who attempt to abscond from probation or their registration requirements, the surveillance of high risk offenders and community sweeps.
