Megan’s Law

Earlier today a prospective buyer asked me about sex offenders in the neighborhood.  Now, some neighborhood information is obvious- all you have to do is open you eyes.  Other stuff, is not so easy to determine.  However, the web does provide a wealth of available information that can easily be tapped to discover all kinds of info about any given neighborhood or area.

“Megan’s Law” provides for a public database of the last known whereabouts of sex offenders.  The law requires convicted sex offenders to register their residency with local law enforcement officials.  This information is then available to the general public.  While this information does not get updated as would be most desirable, it nevertheless provides the best available information available about who your new neighbors might or might not be.  If this is something that concerns you, it might make good sense to check out the local listing.
