Neighborhood Predator Alert
This is not an internet security program. Rather, from this website, you
can learn who are the dangrous people in your neighborhood. Since Megan's law
was passed it is required by law for all sexual offenders to register with their
local police department. Unfortunately, budgetary restraints make it almost
impossible for this vital information to be passed out to each parent in every
community. The National Alert Registry (NAR) was designed to bring this
information directly to you. By conducting a zip code search you can learn
whether a sexual offender has moved into your community. The free service tells you how
many are in your area; the complete pay service provides you with complete profiles of the sexual offenders.
