    When you visit this site you can enter your address and a map will pop up with your house as the small icon of a house and red, blue, green, dots surrounding your entire neighborhood.

    When you click on these dots a PICTURE of a person will appear with an address and the description of the crime he or she had committed. I was really shocked at how many of these people were in my neighborhood.

    This site was developed by John Walsh from Americas Most Wanted.

    Zero in my college's town or my hometown, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. My gf has almost been raped twice since I've been going out with her

    Not to detract from the good intentions behind these things but haven't they proved to be occasionally inaccurate?

    There was one put up by a guy using state data and google maps which was subsequently hacked numerous times. One incident that I recall was the adding of all local politicians to the on-line sex offenders registry.

    I guess the lesson to learn is that things on line can be hacked so don't tick off anyone who proves to be even vaguely competent with a computer. Other than that, tar and feathers ahoy.

    Using this we just found out one of our co-workers was on the list. But the address was not up to date so now he is a guest of King County Jail. That was really spooky to find out somebody you have worked with turns out to be one of those sicko's

    Edit: He is a level 3 and had moved in with a woman and her 4 kids we felt that he needed to be turned in.

    Several thousand sex offenders were released during Katrina - so yes there is a humongous potential for error. Also those are only known that have registred. Those aren't those who haven't registered or those who haven't been found yet.

    Despite the possible inaccuracies, this is the best way to prevent sexual crimes. It empowers neighbors to be vigilant and proactive, not hapless potential victims, and as scary as it is to see those dots near my house, it also makes me feel good to know that I have the advantage of knowing where these ****ers are. Yeah, I like it. Thanks for the post.

    I trust you have all read this bit from the site?

    Harrassing anyone on the offender registry is a misdemeanor and can be punished by both a fine and jail time. The purpose of this service is to allow you to identify sexual predators that you may come in contact with, not as a tool to hunt them down and run them out.

    There's one just down the street from me, I pass that house every day. The disturbing part is, there is an elementary school on the same street. I know everybody on the list has a story to tell, maybe it was a boyfriend/girlfriend thing that went bad, but it still bothers me.

    It's all about being aware....and teaching kids to be aware. Some people change....others don't. Look at serial killer, Arthur Shawcross, if the local police had known that he'd killed before (which was kept from them because he'd been run out of the places he tried to settle before that), the police could have caught him a long time before they did.

    Cripes!



    Not very many where my nephews live, but dotted ALL OVER the DC line going into DC at the border are perverts.... both home and work.

    I had no idea DC was full of child molesters.

    The sad fact is that most sexual offenses, particularly against minors, are committed by family members. You'd do better to watch your kid around Uncle Joe rather than the registered sex offender down the block. Family abuse is also less likely to be reported to the police as people hush it up in the family.

    It's only something like 5% of abuse that is done by non-family members.

    What's the big deal? How many people total live in that area? a million? I bet that's a perfectly average distribution.

    Yeah when you look at townds like NYC , DC or San Antonio
    While there are say 175 in my area of san antonio, one has to realize that there is a population of 1 1/2 million i think.
    and then remember that Dateline episode where they nabbed 21 people and then went to California nad nabbed 51 people in 3 days.

    Unfortunately, Oregon does not currently publicize the registered sex offenders living within the state. Consequently, we are unable to provide any information about Oregon's sex offender population.
