LexisNexis Launches Solution to Tackle National Sex Predator Problem

November 28, 2007  | 

LexisNexis Risk & Information Analytics Group launched its Advanced Investigative Solution (AIS) to help law enforcement agencies locate and monitor non-compliant sexual predators. The solution enables investigators to more quickly respond to child abductions and supports law enforcement agencies with their efforts to enforce the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, which mandates strict registration requirements for sex offenders.

NCMEC estimates that LexisNexis technology was directly instrumental in the successful recovery of at least 146 missing children in 2006.

The Advanced Investigative Solution leverages critical information, link analysis, mapping and alerts needed to rapidly identify and locate sexual predators.

In the commercial sector, the company announced a partnership earlier this year with Sentinel, a leader in online verification, to provide a solution to enable the detection and identification of sexual predators on social networking sites such as
