I used to work with children, and their parents were always amazed when I would get on the computer with them and show them all of the sex offenders living in the vicinity of where they lived, or where their children went to school, or played. I was looking around last night in the app store, since I've got a new device, and found an app called Safe Neighborhood. It's in the Google Play store, but I'm sure there's an Apple version, as well, and maybe also a Windows one, although i'm not entirely sure about that. If not, they should work on developing one. I don't have children, but I have friends and neighbors who do have children and grandkids, and since I downloaded the app, I decided to look in the area, to see where the sex offenders are living. As expected, they seem to congregate in certain areas, but I also found out that there's one living 2 streets over from me. It's important to realize that not everyone who is a registered sex offender presents a danger, or a serious danger, to you or your family members and other loved ones, and if you click on the picture, it will bring up additional information that can give you an idea of the nature of their offenses. Someone can be a registered sex offender for pulling over to urinate, and if someone drives by and reports it, especially if they have a child in the vehicle, it can cause a lot of difficulty for the person, so it's important if you need to do your business, to do it in a place where you won't be observed. Another questionable situation can be where teens engage in consensual sex, and the parents press charges, so it's important not to freak out if you do see that someone is on the registry, but do a little further checking, then proceed accordingly. If you're in Texas, there's also a Texas DPS (Department of Public Safety) app that enables you to also look at sex offenders, as well as most wanted fugitives, and other information.
