CrimeReports Adds Sex Offender Data To Nationwide Crime Map

December 09, 2009  | 

Today CrimeReports announced the inclusion of official, nationwide sex offender data on the national crime map at the company's website. Already partnering with nearly 700 law enforcement agencies across North America, CrimeReports is the largest crime-mapping site on the web. The combined crime and sex offender map will be updated weekly and is free to the public.

Up to this point, CrimeReports has worked with individual state sex offender databases or individual law enforcement agencies, but did not have full U.S. coverage. Now, with the introduction of national sex offender data, anyone in the U.S. can search the CrimeReports map and see sex offender information for their area, even if their local law enforcement agency is not yet a CrimeReports partner.

Lately the news has been rife with stories of registered sex offenders kidnapping and committing horrific acts of violence while under state supervision.

"The incidents that have recently been brought to light are deeply disturbing," says Ryan Lufkin, director of marketing at CrimeReports. "As a result, citizens want to know what is going on in their neighborhoods."

As families prepare for holiday travel, it becomes even more important for everyone to not only be able to check crime levels at their destinations, but also to check sex offender information easily online.

"When citizens have comprehensive, official, timely information, they have peace of mind," says Lufkin. "And that's what we provide as the holiday travel season gets under way."
