Ever wonder if your neighbors are secretly not so friendly?
The sex offender registry is public record, and new neighbors are legally supposed to announce themselves as sex offenders if they've been convicted. But that transparency can be hard to come by — unless you know about CrimeReports.com.
The website is a great resource for local crime data. Some police departments use it to show the community where crimes are taking place. But even in places where the local PD doesn't participate, the whole country has been mapped with addresses and photos of sex offenders.
The criminals are marked on the map with red triangles. Orange triangles symbolize two sex offenders living at one address. Click on the triangles to see details on the offenders.
In Larkspur and Corte Madera, the site shows just two offenders, which is clearly miniscule. Cities like South San Francisco, Watsonville and Gilroy, there are 30 to 50 sex offenders.
Even in small places like Millbrae, Burlingame, Capitola and Scotts Valley, there are about six to 10 sex offenders.
