We invite you to use our free service to locate registered sex offenders in your area. Just enter an address and we'll show a map. You can click on the squares that appear and see photos (where available) addresses, convictions and other information about the offender.
Our notification service is very simple. You specify addresses that you want to watch and the distance around those addresses. We do the rest. We can also monitor specific offenders as well. We update our data daily from multiple state sex offender registries. As soon as a convicted sex offender registers an address in your area, we will alert you. It's that easy.
