National Sex Offender Registry
The National Sex Offender Registry was created because of the Pam Lychner Sexual Offender Tracking and Identification Act of 1996 (Lychner Act). The Lychner act, among other things, requires that a national database be maintained and that the FBI use it to track the movements of convicted SexOffenders. It is the FBI’s job to register and verify the addresses of Sex Offenders.
Concerned parents now have the ability to access a national sex offender registry to search for child predators in their neighborhood. Kids Live Safe (Click here to find out more) provides a nation-wide database of registered sex offenders for the empowerment of parents.
Prior to this service, sex offender data has only been made available on a state or county level, and conveniently locating and accessing the information was often difficult. In most instances, you have to know the name of the individual you are looking for, and in many states, you must go to your police station and complete a request form. Additionally, some states have a fee and limit individuals to viewing only two registered sex offender names at a time.
Kids Live Safe pledges its commitment to supporting children by providing parents with the tools to help them become aware, involved, and prepared.
