One service offered by Family Watchdog is helping people locate registered sex offenders that live in certain areas. Family Watchdog also notifies people when any sex offenders move in or move out of their cities or neighborhoods.
Users can search for registered sex offenders in their areas by entering an address, city, state or ZIP code. Once the information is entered, Family Watchdog returns a list of registered offenders located in that particular area.
Family Watchdog also provides users with a list of Frequently Asked Questions, sex offender statistics, a listing of state registries, and laws and definitions. Family Watchdog also provides users with a listing of safety recalls of certain products.
Anyone can register with the Family Watchdog website by choosing a user ID and password and entering an email address and mobile phone number so he can receive text message alerts. Once registered, users receive notification and information that pertains to their areas, and are also signed up to receive the Family Watchdog newsletter. Family Watchdog also maintains a Facebook page where users can interact and learn more information regarding sex offenders, or take part in active discussions regarding sex offenders and other related crimes that may be in the news.
