What can I do to protect myself and my family?

There are a number of ways to protect yourself from sexually violent predators (SVP) and from sex offenders in general, including:

  • Sign up for alerts about sex offenders moving near your home, work, and child’s school. You may enroll up to five physical addresses and be notified if a registered sex offender moves into a designated area around the addresses you input.
  • Educate your children. Let them know if there is a house you want them to stay away from.
  • Know who your children are with and if you suspect anything inappropriate is happening start asking questions and look into it.
  • Realize that most sex offenders, including SVPs, are people the victim knows.
