High Marks for Florida's Registry

A new survey ranks Florida's registry of sex offenders and predators as one of the best in the nation.

"Parents for Megan's Law" gave Florida an A plus. The group evaluated states on everything from how much information is available to how easy it is to access it to what laws are in place to keep tabs on sex offenders in society.

Florida is one of only three states in the country to earn an A plus.

Mary Coffee of the FDLE Sex Offender and Predator Unit said, "Until no sex offenses occur, that would be the ultimate perfection, but in the meantime we're continually striving and working with our sister agencies at the state level as well as local law enforcement agencies to make sure that the system is as efficient and as accurate as possible."

While Florida earned the highest grade for its sex offender registry, Georgia was near the bottom of the list. It earned a D.
