OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – Detectives with the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office recently conducted checks on the hundreds of sex offenders and predators in the county and found dozens of them are still breaking the law.

When members of the sex offender and predator unit checked up on all 550 offenders and predators living in Osceola County, they didn’t just check addresses, they checked everything.

Detective Michelle Keefer called it a “deep dive.”

“Residency, driver’s license, phone number, employment, social media, internet sites,” Keefer said.

Keefer is one of two detectives who spent seven months working six days a week to thoroughly research all offenders.

Offenders and predators are required to register with the Sheriff’s Office many personal details, including email accounts and usernames.
