Putnam County announced on Friday that they had reorganized resources and created a position known as a “Sex Offender Compliance Specialist.”
The Florida Sex Offender Registry said that there are currently 305 sex offenders in Putnam County.
The county says the specialist “will work in conjunction with the current offender compliance program as a means of providing critical intelligence for investigators by assessing risk-related changes in offender’s behavior.”
“We refuse to allow Putnam County to become a safe haven for sexual offenders and predators,” said Gator Deloach, who was elected Sheriff in Nov. 2016. “While we can’t control in which county they choose to live, we can certainly make Putnam County as inhospitable as possible for them.”
