Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 17, 2009
Criminal Pages, the nationally recognized leader in record searches and criminal background checks, announced the launch of their new, completely free website Friday. The purpose of the new criminalpages.com is to provide consumers with access to the over 300 million criminal and public records in the Criminal Pages database.
Veering away from the traditional paid record search service, CriminalPages.com is taking a three tiered approach to the information market, starting with a neighborhood check - something that few other people search companies offer. (In essence, this service allows consumers to compare their city's crime and economic rates with national averages)
The sex offender check from Criminal Pages is also an indispensable tool when it comes to keeping customers safe. As sexual crime rates continue to rise in the United States, more and more people are turning to online sources of information to help protect their families. Consider this - Convicted sex offenders are about 70% more likely to be arrested for assaulting or molesting a child under the age of 13. Added to this, overcrowded prison conditions mean that more and more sexual predators are being released early. With statistics this startling, it's no wonder why consumers are flocking to CriminalPages.com to receive a free check on the sex offenders that live and work nearby.
But perhaps the most innovative of Criminal Pages' free search services comes in the form of their criminal records searches. The advent of new database technology means that CriminalPages.com can bring information to consumers that, even a few short years ago, would have been impossible. No other comparable company provides this caliber of criminal records absolutely free of charge. Among the background information available at the new Criminal Pages are complete felony conviction records (which include serious crimes, such as robberies, assaults, drug sales, and murder) as well as misdemeanors.
Consumers can also use the Criminal Pages website to find out about a person's sex offender status. Thanks to Megan's Law, enacted in the late 1990s, the public is entitled to information from the FBI's national sex offender registry.
Additionally, CriminalPages.com provides access to valuable information on parole and probation violations, as well as arrest records, conviction records, and inmate records.
