Las Vegas, Nevada and Palo Alto, California (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
Keeping children safe is every parent’s greatest concern. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, there are over 745,000 registered sex offenders in the United States (Report dated Nov. 4, 2011). Today, AlertID is announcing an important free service to help protect families and children in the state of Ohio, in addition to other AlertID covered states, that includes sex offender and neighborhood safety alerts.
The Adam Walsh Protection and Safety Act of 2006 requires states to provide public access to state sex offender information yet states are not required to notify residents if an offender’s information, such as his or her address, changes, and this updated information is not easily accessible to the public.
AlertID, the national service that reduces crime and helps families to Live Safely™, offers the safe way to receive trusted public safety alerts and share information with neighbors at no cost to members.
With AlertID, members can view a local map showing where registered sex offenders live or work in their neighborhoods. If an offender moves into their neighborhood or near their child’s school, AlertID will automatically send an alert. Included in each alert are important safety and prevention tips. AlertID also gives members and neighbors the ability to securely share information with each other, empowering the public and reducing crime. If traveling to other areas in the state or around the country, members can access the same information at no cost with AlertID’s mobile app.
“Knowing about the dangers in your area can make all the difference in protecting your family. The more we know about what is happening in our neighborhoods and the more we share information with neighbors using AlertID, the safer our children and communities will be,” said Keli Wilson, Founder of AlertID and mother of three.
