An ordinance was tentatively approved by the San Diego City Council yesterday that would “regulate sex offenders’ proximity to any public or private schools, child care facility, video arcade, playground, park or amusement center.”
Councilman Jim Madaffer said:
“The purpose of this ordinance is simple — it’s to protect children from sex offenders by restricting them from being within 300 feet of where children gather.”
The ordinance requires a second reading before it can be implemented. The ordinance is “is meant to complement Jessica’s Law, which was approved by California voters in 2006 and prohibits paroled sex offenders from residing within 2,000 feet of schools and playgrounds.”
