Offender Locator

Offender Locator_pic2

THE DESCRIPTION:
Offender Locator allows you to locate registered sex offenders within range of the address you enter.

THE GOOD:
You can search using your current location, an address from your contact list, or any street address you enter. Your search results include a name, photo, address and description of each offender. You can also see a brief description of their crimes as well as a map of the sex offenders in your area.

THE BAD:
The search results load somewhat slowly and the description for each offender’s crime is usually a run-on, vague, chopped-up series of sentences. Also, the concept is a little strange, and more than a bit creepy; this is less of a utility and more of a prurient entertainment application/ violation of privacy.

THE BOTTOM LINE:
If searching for sex offenders online doesn’t cut it for you, you may find this option more convenient. Once you search for offenders from a few locations, you probably won’t open it again. These people are also registered, so they probably don’t pose more of a threat than the average stranger. Try “Most Wanted” to get details about the FBI’s most wanted criminals.
