ALERTID NOW MAKES SEX OFFENDER ALERTS AVAILABLE TO MORE THAN 200 MILLION U.S. RESIDENTS
More than two-thirds of U.S. Residents Can Now Receive Free Sex Offender Information and Alerts via Mobile App and Computer
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA AND PALO ALTO, CALIF. (Oct. 16, 2012) ― AlertID™, the established leader in making the country’s public safety information universally accessible now makes up-to-date sex offender information and alerts available to more than 200 million people or about two-thirds of U.S. residents. Today AlertID is announcing the availability of sex offender alerts to residents in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Colorado, Kentucky, Missouri and Tennessee in addition to states already supported, which are California, Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Florida, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, Nevada, Idaho and Arizona. Additional states will be announced soon. These critical alerts are delivered directly to members’ computers and mobile devices, thanks to AlertID.
Residents may register for free with AlertID, provide the addresses of areas they would like to monitor—home, workplace, school, park, shopping center or any other physical location (even in other states)—and then see a map displaying the locations of registered sex offenders in those areas. In addition, AlertID members will receive alerts on their smartphones, tablets and email whenever any information about existing sex offenders changes or when new sex offenders move into any of their monitored areas.
“Being aware of potential threats in their neighborhoods is crucial to helping families and communities protect themselves,” said Ken Wiles, CEO of AlertID. “Just think, Halloween is around the corner, and what parent wouldn’t want to know if a person living in a home on their child’s trick-or-treat route is a registered sex offender?”
In addition to delivering sex offender alerts, AlertID’s Secure Social Network provides a safe and easy way for individuals, families, communities, schools, co-workers, public safety officials and others concerned about the safety of communicating on social networks to share important information quickly.
AlertID’s Secure Social Network is built upon its proprietary two-way communication platform, offering not only sophisticated location and activity mapping, but also an interactive social network allowing members to share critical information with each other in a secure, graphically compelling way.
