Valley App of the Week: Sex Offender Registry Archives

Posted: Updated:

There are plenty of websites dedicated to tracking where sex offenders live. The Sex Offender Registry Archives claims to put that information right in the palm of your hand.

The app contains more than 750,000 listings. It offers several ways to search including name, age or keywords.

It also has an option to enter your address, that didn't work for us, but the Zip Code function did. You can display the results as a list, on a map or as a photo gallery.

The problem we found, it's unclear how accurate this "archive" really is. When we checked the results against the National Sex Offender Public Website and the North Dakota and Minnesota websites it didn't stack up.

The Sex Offender Registry Archives was missing several offenders listed on the web. The ones it did have had out of date pictures. And when you click to get more information about their charges, in many cases they weren't listed. Not exactly the "definitive source of sex offenders past and present."

If you do want to download the Sex Offender Registry Archives to try it yourself it's available for free on Apple and Android.
