TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING COUNTY MANAGER TO CREATE AND BROADCAST PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS ON MIAMI-DADE COUNTY’S GOVERNMENT ACCESS CHANNEL, MIAMI-DADE TV, RELATING TO SEXUAL OFFENDERS AND SEXUAL PREDATORS WANTED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES

BODY
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners (the “Board”) is concerned about convicted sexual offenders and sexual predators who are released into the community and cannot be located by police due to failure to comply with State registration requirements; and
WHEREAS, the Board is also concerned about convicted sexual offenders and sexual predators who have outstanding warrants for arrest; and
WHEREAS, public service announcements on Miami-Dade County’s Government Access Channel, Miami-Dade TV, regarding sexual offenders and sexual predators wanted by law enforcement agencies will provide the residents of Miami-Dade County with additional protection from known sexual offenders and sexual predators; and
WHEREAS, increasing community awareness of sexual offenders and sexual predators who have absconded will facilitate locating sexual offenders and sexual predators,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA:
Section 1. The County Manager is instructed to create public service announcements which shall include names, photographs and other appropriate information about sexual offenders and sexual predators wanted by law enforcement agencies and to broadcast the public service announcements on Miami-Dade County’s Government Access Channel, Miami-Dade TV.
Section 2. The County’s Communications and Police Departments shall work cooperatively to determine which sexual offenders and sexual predators will be broadcasted on Miami-Dade TV and the frequency of the broadcasts.
Section 3. Within 30 days of the effective date of this Resolution, or at the next regularly scheduled Community Outreach, Safety & Healthcare Administration Committee, the County Manager shall report the status of the public service announcements and provide a schedule for broadcasting.
