superior technology for more effective SOR management
Why Do Agencies Choose OffenderWatch®?
OffenderWatch® makes the most of an agency’s limited resources by minimizing the administrative “paperwork” time for each offender, allowing personnel to maximize the amount of time interviewing and monitoring the actual offender, recording the most extensive data, and flagging any inconsistencies in the offender record.
Through precise offender address mapping, interagency alerts, automated calendar appointments, and full document archiving that preserves state forms and photos as attachments to the offender record, OffenderWatch® helps agencies get more done in less time with fewer resources. Since OffenderWatch® is also cloud-based, there is no need to allocate additional office space or financial investments for new hardware.
Because OffenderWatch® platforms are highly configurable and based on the most comprehensive database in the nation, our software applications can scale to accommodate a growing national network of agencies.

Powerful GIS Architecture
OffenderWatch® utilizes geographic information system (GIS) data to:
Provide accurate mapping of registered offenders, employ geofencing for community notification, and define jurisdictional boundaries.
Support investigative efforts with access to “map-based queries” that have the capacity to identify suspects who are in close proximity to incident locations.
Enable private citizens to perform radial searches around their homes or other areas frequented by their children, as well as receive automated email alerts to notify them if a registered sex offender moves within a prescribed distance of their location.
Dispatch instant alerts to law enforcement in the event that an offender registers an address that is unlawfully close to a school, daycare, or other protected location so that agents can provide a rapid response to any breach of statutory boundaries.
Leverage frequent updates or upgrades to mapping data to improve the quality of public registry searches by verifying that locations of registered offenders can be precisely visualized and that corresponding address details are accurate.
OffenderWatch® enables every law enforcement agency to implement best practices for fulfilling all state, local, or federal statutory requirements regarding sex offender registration, records management, and community notification. This includes state-level agencies charged with monitoring any associated government office responsible for sex offender registration, verification, and state reporting tasks to ensure their compliance with applicable SORNA requirements set forth within the Adam Walsh Act.
The OffenderWatch® family of products offers customizable software solutions that can immediately improve workflow, cost-effectiveness, accuracy, and efficiency in sex offender registry management. By utilizing our experience in product development to incorporate an exceptional range of options for clients to configure key software features, we empower law enforcement agencies to accommodate their own unique operational and statutory requirements with an SOR management system that provides the precise level of support they want and need to do the job.
