Family watchdog

Click on this link to see if you have criminals living near you.

www.familywatchdog.us

When you visit this site you can enter your address and a map will pop up with your house as a small icon of a house. There will be red, blue and green dots surrounding your entire neighborhood. When you click on these dots a picture of a criminal will appear with his or her home address and the description of the crime he or she has committed.

The best thing is that you can show your children these pictures and see how close these people live to your home or school.

This site was developed by John Walsh from Americas Most Wanted.

This is another tool we can use to help us keep our kids safe.

Please pass this on to everyone!!

My aunt sent me this email yesterday and this was my response:
I've seen this website before but not since I've lived in this house. I get nervous sometimes being here by myself and now I just found out....
Less than 1/2 mile away lives an "other offense"
Less than 1 mile away lives an "offense against children" and a "rape"
and 2 more "offense against children" live less than 1.5 miles away.

Yikes!
