What You Need to Know About the National Sex Offenders Registry
The National Sex Offenders Registry tracks hundreds of thousands of pedophiles, rapists, and other sex offenders as they move around the country — maybe even into your neighborhood.
Your FREE Sex Offender Report from Family Safety Report gives you state-of-the-art access to the Registry – plus the peace of mind that comes with making your family safer.
Here's a brief Q and A that tells you what you need to know about the Registry:
Who developed the National Sex Offenders Registry?
The Crimes Against Children Unit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation coordinated the development of the Registry and continues to manage the implementation of the Registry.
When was the Registry created?
The 1996 Lychner Act required the U.S. Attorney General to establish a national database at the FBI to track the whereabouts and movements of certain convicted sex offenders. The Act also made it a criminal offense for a registered sex offender to move to another state and knowingly fail to notify the FBI and authorities in the new state.
Does the Registry contain information from all 50 states?
Yes, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. However, different states have different sex offender laws, so it's possible that someone considered a sex offender in one state might not be considered a sex offender in another state.
What's the easiest way to access the Registry?
You can find the National Sex Offender Registry online at http://www.familywatchdog.us/. The website is updated daily, based on data made available to the public (individual states can update it more frequently than that), with any changes to current information posted within 24 hours. This allows you to check back as often as you want and keep an eye on areas of interest to you.
As a member of Family Safety Report, though, you can get this information delivered straight to your computer. Simply specify up to three addresses, and Family Safety Report will tell you the names and addresses of convicted child molesters and sex criminals who live near those addresses. You can even receive e-mail alerts when a sex criminal moves near the addresses you specify.
