A while ago MakeUseOf profiled Felonspy, a website we believed that aimed to help people find convicted felons residing in the neighborhood areas. After a number of comments it became clear that the website was bogus and full of crap.
This time we would like to introduce to you Family Watchdog: a national sex offender registry where you can search for nearby sex offenders and get a map view of their adresses.
Important: Harassing anyone on the offender registry database is a misdemeanor and can be punished both by a fine and jail time.
- Lookup sex offenders by name or search by location (US only).
- Get map view of registered nearby offenders, see their photos, distance from your zipcode, exact addresses and conviction details.
- Get a free email or text alerts when an offender moves near you.
- Accessible from any web-enabled mobile phone.
- Read safety tips for parents and children.
- Coming soon: Receive alert notifications on your voicemail when an offender moves near you.
- For more information and questions go to service FAQ section here.
