Mc Callum said the county’s number of sex offenders also raises concern.Levy County has the second-highest ratio of sex offenders in north central Florida, according to data from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.Jeff Edison, assistant superintendent of administration for the Levy County School Board, said parents have voiced concern about sex offenders being able to get on campuses easily.Edison said the signs will remind sex offenders of the restraints that come with being a registered offender.“It’s in their interest to not be there if they’re not supposed to be there because it’s a violation,” Edison said.Despite parents’ fears, University of Florida law professor and former prosecutor Bob Dekle said it’s unlikely for a stranger to pick a child at random to harm.

Because of the spacious, rural nature of the county there are more residences in the area that fit the statutory requirements, Mc Callum said. He was added to the sex offender registry in 2004 after being convicted of lewd molestation of an elderly or disabled person, according to Levy County court records.An analysis of Florida’s 67 counties shows that the average number of offenders and predators for Florida counties is 0.2 percent, or about 20 offenders per 10,000 people.“For the size of the county, we’re dealing with – in my opinion – an abnormal amount of offenders and predators,” Mc Callum said.“It’s all preventative.” State law dictates that a registered sex offender who wants to attend an after-school event with students younger than 18 must notify the school.If the request is approved, the sex offender is supervised by a designated chaperone while on campus.
