BARTOW, Fla. (AP) – People with active warrants in one Florida county might want to think twice about heading to a shelter for Hurricane Irma.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd posted on his official Twitter account Wednesday that deputies will be checking identification at the county’s shelters, and anyone with a warrant will be arrested and taken to “the safe and secure shelter called the Polk County Jail.”

Should the sheriff’s efforts during a crisis be outstanding warrants rather than helping those in immediate need during an emergency?
The storm should help him do it!
To ban sexual predators during a crisis from a target rich environment?
I’m OK with that.
well duh, i recall katrina

Guess you’ve never seen what walks in to these shelters.
You can be put on a sex offender’s list for getting caught urinating outdoors or dating a 17 year old when you are 18.
I get the reasoning, but I hope he doesn’t get caught up in a lawsuit.
Give them phones and put them out one piers as canaries to call in during the storm.once they stop callin, everyone will know the storm surge has arrived.
Been there done that never got caught.
I still urinate outdoors on a regular basis.
we push the cots apart 6 in and put the kids in the middle around strangers
Yes. There will be lots of kids & confusion. Perfect pervert situation. Good sheriff!
I see the concept of multitasking and assigning different personnel to different tasks is entirely foreign to you.
As is the concept that protecting children and women from sexual predators is not a priority which decreases during a crisis.
Excellent, Bill Clinton is banned from the shelter.
“Should the sheriffs efforts during a crisis be outstanding warrants rather than helping those in immediate need during an emergency?”
the sheriff is taking common sense measures to prevent the wolves from entering the shelters along with the lambs.
Frickin disgusting in my book. These people should have been checked and if found to be here illegal or had warrants handed over to proper authorities like this fine peace officer in Florida is doing. Helluva way to get rid of your dirt.
Might save a couple predator lives and impressionable psyches - if a sexual predator got caught doing evil in such a place, chances are the kids would be further traumatized from seeing the mangled corpses after the mothers of children got done with them...
Seems like a Sheriff that former Sheriffs David Clarke and Joe Ariapo would endorse.
No mention, though, of what he will do with the illegal aliens that show up... and Florida has tons of them.
Should helping those in immediate need during an emergency include protecting children from sexual predators, or are you just fine and dandy with sexual predators wandering around shelters looking for fresh meat to satisfy their deranged habits?
This is my Sheriff!
Yeah, but does that mean that Muslim men can’t be in the shelters?
