Polk County Sheriff: Sex offenders not allowed in Hurricane Irma shelters

Robbery Double Homicide

The Polk County Sheriff's Department sent out a series of tweets informing those with outstanding arrest warrants that they ought not head to hurricane shelters to avoid Irma, which is expected to make landfall in parts of Florida by September 9, according to CNN.

The sheriff said the same goes for any criminals who have arrest warrants out for them.

'This could easily be the most costly storm in U.S. history, which is saying a lot considering what just happened two weeks ago, ' said Brian McNoldy, a hurricane researcher at the University of Miami.

On Twitter, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd issued some guidelines regarding the evacuation plans for the Category 5 hurricane that could possibly hit the state over the weekend. The Category 5 storm with near record-breaking wind speeds in excess of 180 miles per hour is expected to hit Florida this weekend, but its precise track is still being determined, according to the Washington Post.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement shows over 1100 registered sex offenders live in Polk County, Florida. "Period", the Polk County Sheriff's Office added. The article said Horstman authored the tweets on behalf of the sheriff's office. There are 47 public shelters in the county, but they have not yet been opened to accept hurricane evacuees.

She added: "I am not going to be prescriptive but we do not believe that there can be a prolonged set of talks". She said, "We want to make the institutions work".

Horstman tells the New York Times that officials are not concerned with checking the immigration status of people in the shelters. "If you have a warrant, turn yourself into the jail and if you are a predator, find somewhere to go". That's the same approach they took with Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

Twitter users were outraged by the statements as the potentially life-threatening storm approaches southeast Florida. Instead, they will be escorted to the Polk County Jail.

"It is normal protocol to have an accountability log and to know the names of each person going in", she said.

"It's a tragedy, we'll need to rebuild both islands".
