So you just found out there's a sex offender living nearby....

Or perhaps you had no idea.  It is light outside till 8pm, your kids are out later. And if you live in a suburban area, chances are you might let your kids play unsupervised.  Which is fine, except I just found out that a level 3 sex offender moved in across the street from my niece last night.  Yes, the town is feverishly sending out the notices, as they must by law, to those who live within a mile of the registered sex offender's new address.  But in the mean time, I bet you don't know how many are nearby.  I found it imperative to get you educated on how to find out if there is a registered sex offender living near you.

There are multiple sites you can search:
On Family Watchdog, you can enter your street address and it will plot a map of any sex offenders in the area.

Search by Town or Zip Code.  Sex Offender Fact Sheet Notification of Release in Rhode Island:
