Family Safety Tips

Has your child stopped to talk with a predator? Does your child pass by a registered sex offender’s house when walking back from school or while riding her bike? The OffenderWatch app sends you a text message if your child lingers near a known offender’s residence.

Do you know if registered sex offenders live near your child? 80% of homes in the U.S. are within a mile of a registered offender’s residence. Where do offenders live in your neighborhood?   With the OffenderWatch App, parents:

  • Track your child on a map and see if registered offenders live nearby.
  • Get an alert if your child lingers too close to a registered offender’s residence.
  • Get an alert if a registered offender contacts your child by call, text, or email.
  • Click to request a check in from your child.

Thousands of concerned parents downloaded the OffenderWatch App before Halloween to protect their children while trick-or-treating. The following week, the OffenderWatch App sent four proximity alerts to parents alerting them that their child is lingering near a registered offender’s house. We continue to see several alerts each week.Predators are actively trolling for their next victim, grooming up to 13 kids at a time. With 900,000 sex offenders in the U.S., it is imperative for parents to be proactive in your child ’s safety.Many child safety apps charge just to search for offenders nearby or track a child, and some of these have monthly fees. But, for an annual subscription of $9.99, the ENTIRE family can be monitored. Aren’t they worth it?
