Polk County Sheriff Grady Judge said officials will be checking IDs of people trying to escape the category five hurricane as it gets ready to smash into the state this weekend.

He also wrote that sex offenders and sex predators would be barred from entering the shelters.

A Sheriff in central Florida is stirring up a debate online after tweeting that officers will be denying entry to sex offenders seeking shelter from Hurricane Irma. "Sex offenders/predators will not be allowed".

Some suggested Judd's threat may deter people from seeking shelter from Irma, staying home and putting their lives at risk to avoid going to jail.

"Of all the gross things that America has invented and mass-produced, Aspiring Celebrity Tough Guy Sheriffs have to be about the grossest", David Roth said on Twitter Wednesday.

Carrie Horstman, a spokesperson for the Sheriff's Office, told the Orlando Sentinel that "officers are legally obligated to take a person into custody if they have a warrant" and said that the effort will allow residents to feel the shelters are safe.

"The tweet might have been semi tongue-in-cheek", she said during a Wednesday afternoon phone interview.

Arpaio, a former Arizona sheriff, was pardoned by Trump last month after being convicted of criminal contempt of court for ignoring a judge's order to stop detaining people because he suspected them of being undocumented immigrants.

When asked further about the stance, the Polk County Sheriff's Department clarified its position to the Daily Beast.

According to the New York Times, there are 47 public shelters in Polk County, which has a population of more than 600,000 people. That's the same approach they took with Hurricane Harvey in Texas. "The jail is a safe and secure facility you can seek shelter from the storm there". Instead, they will be escorted to the Polk County Jail. "This is not the message we need to be sending out with a disaster upon us".
