Increasingly, buyers, sellers, and homeowners want to know if a convicted sex offender is in their neighborhoods. Though it can be difficult to assess the gravity of each situation, it never hurts to be aware of what is happening around your home and town. Hardly any developed area of the United States is devoid of offenders.
As real estate agents it is impossible for my colleagues or me to know where every single offender is at any point in time. People do move around, but offenders have to report where they live. Law enforcement officials keep track of them on their computer systems. However, thanks to the internet YOU too can perform searches and get a better idea of who is out there, what crime they commited, and where they live.
The Family Watchdog webpage lets you put in an address or area, and then creates a map so you can see where offenders live in that zone. By clicking on the boxes on the map you can see who the offender is, where he/she resides, and what his/her offense was. To go to the Family Watchdog site, CLICK HERE
In Pasco County, Florida you can also click on the Pasco County Sheriff's webpage at: http://pascosheriff.com to find a list of Sexual Predators that now reside in Pasco County, Florida. There is no map here that I could find. This is just a list with names, addresses, pictures, and offenses. It may also just deal with "predators" and not with other sex offenders.
Both of these sites do provide useful information for people that already live in this area and those who are moving here. I hope that this link was helpful to you.
