Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) July 17, 2006
Spatial NetWorks’ new WatchLink technology is now available free for all residents of Florida. WatchLink provides automatic web based reporting of the FDLE sex offender database for the entire state. Florida Attorney General Charlie Crist provides a link to this valuable service for use by all Florida residents on his consumer web pages under CHILD SAFETY at http://myfloridalegal.com/.
The data is drawn from the FDLE online data site but instead of requiring research to find out offender locations and details the service automatically sends the information to the consumer, requiring a one time selection and registration. Residents can access a pre existing list of public and private schools, daycare and aftercare centers to get custom reports of offenders in the areas where their children attend school and play. Any other home, school, work or play address can be entered as well and a custom report generated. Updates are sent as specified by the user for immediate notification or weekly reporting.
While other web-based services give information about the locations of registered sex offenders, WatchLink shows residents these locations in relation to their home, school, daycare, office or any other place of interest. Pictures, names, aliases, convictions and complete physical descriptions are available in the full report. The report is linked to an easy-to-use interactive map that provides the user entered location and specified surrounding area.
Attorney General Charlie Crist says "Protecting our most vulnerable citizens is the highest priority of our State. By providing parents with another tool to fulfill the responsibility of looking out for children, our neighborhoods are that much safer.”
