What is the National Alert Registry?

The National Alert Registry gives a list or registered sex offenders for the United States. Visitors to the Website can perform sex offender searches. The public can access a list of sexual offenders for their area by simply typing in the zip code of their city or town.
If you have a question about someone who has contacted you or your child online, you can also check for sex offenders by typing in an e-mail address.
A typical sex offender report from the National Alert Registry will list the following:
* Map of the designated area
* Number of offenders reported
* Radius of miles
* Name of offender
* Picture of offender
* Offense committed
