Redwood City Sex Offenders Online

Want to know where these criminals live in your neighborhood?

 

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, or the California Attorney General's Megan's Law website.

The websites are a great resource for local crime data and information on registered sex offenders in California.

The public and police departments use them to show the community where crimes are taking place and where offenders live and their identities.

But even in places outside local police departments' jurisdictions, the websites have mapped the addresses, names and photos of sex offenders in the entire country. 

The criminals are marked on the CrimeReports.com 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 Redwood City, the Megan's Law website shows a total of 111 sex offenders, 23 in the 94061 zip code, nine in the 94062 zip code, 77 in the 94063 zip code and two in the 94065 zip code.

Do you worry about your neighbors? Are you surprised to see how many sex offenders are in Redwood City? Did you think there would be more? Tell us in the comments!

"Do you worry about your neighbors? Are you surprised to see how many sex offenders are in Redwood City? Did you think there would be more? Tell us in the comments!" How lame and lazy can you get? Why not try some journalism, instead of this nonsense. Break some news, Cover something that makes the community stronger, more well informed and engaged. There's lots of stuff to cover. How about now the city employee pay data that the Daily Post published recently? Surely there is a story there about how the average RWC police officer and "fire" fighter (more often than not, paramedics that drive quarter-million dollar fire-fighting vehicles to medical calls -- when in almost every other civilized country nothing more than an ambulance is dispatched) are making around $150k with very nice and very juicy (but totally unsustainable) life-long pensions for retiring after only 30 years of service. (Never mind the easily-abused system of presumed job-related injury/disability and "double-dipping" and pension packing -- or whatever the term is called when they play games to boost their income in the year before retirement, etc.) There is so much to cover, yet all you can muster is some lame phoned-in "hey people, check out the long-ago established Megan's Law database and tell us what you think about those super-scary offenders (who have to live somewhere!) in the comments" story?

Why the hostility? The reporter provided two links that are usefull, brought up a subject that is important to many, and kept it short and to the point. Overall a good article that could be "phone-in" on a regular basis as an article that DOE'S ' makes the community stronger, more well informed and engaged. '
