A new report released by the state of Florida has determined that Orange County is home to the highest concentrations of sex offenders in the state of Florida, according to reports from the Associated Press and WFTV.
2,299 registered sex offenders infest the area surrounding a theme park hub that calls Universal Studios, Walt Disney World and Epcot home. In 2017, 72 million people visited the Orange County and Orlando area, making it the tourist capitol of the entire nation. Aside from housing the most sex offenders in Florida, the Orlando Sentinel reported that the Greater-Orlando area ranked third in the U.S. for the number of reports to the national human trafficking hotline.

“While local residence restrictions have been widely implemented in Florida communities, federal research and Florida stakeholders reported that they may have unintended results,” cites the state report. “Residence restrictions do not decrease and are not a deterrent for sexual recidivism. In addition, some research has shown no significant decreases in sex crime rates following the implementation of residence restrictions. However, residence restrictions do affect offenders who have to move or have limited housing options, particularly in urban areas.”

Nobody wants to live near them, but they need to live somewhere. A PBS documentary...
