As a father and parent the safety of my children are very important to me. It seems wherever you turn there is something to worry about. We have found a great resource we would like to share with all our readers. Even though sex offender registers have been on the internet for many years, they can be difficult to find and use.
The Familybeacon.com has created a very easy to use map. Based on your IP address it will bring up a map with red flags of sexual offenders in your area. You can easily zoom in or pan out on the map. You can also put in a different area. This is useful if you are traveling, thinking about relocating, or have family in a different location. Clicking on a flag will bring up the address and picture of the offender. There is also a link to the state registry that goes into more detail.
Currently the following states are available with plans to eventually cover all 50 states:
ALABAMA, ALASKA, ARIZONA, ARKANSAS, CALIFORNIA, COLORADO, CONNECTICUT, DELAWARE, FLORIDA, GEORGIA, HAWAII, IDAHO, ILLINOIS, IOWA, INDIANA, KANSAS, KENTUCKY, LOUISIANA, MARYLAND, MASSACHUSETTS, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, MISSISSIPPI, MISSOURI, NEBRASKA, NEW HAMPSHIRE, NEW JERSEY, NEW MEXICO, NEW YORK, NORTH DAKOTA, NORTH CAROLINA, OHIO, OKLAHOMA, PENNSYLVANIA, RHODE ISLAND, TENNESSEE, TEXAS, UTAH, VIRGINIA, WASHINGTON, WEST VIRGINIA, WISCONSIN, WYOMING.
