Recent troubling stats indicate that sex crimes are on the rise in the U.S. With more and more people finding themselves and the people around them victims, some are taking steps to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Worried there may be sex offenders in your life or neighborhood? It’s more common than you think. Recently a father suspected his daughter was being harassed by her high school coach. He used a powerful criminal database called Spokeo to find out that her ‘coach’ was an imposter and listed on the sex offender registry.
With Spokeo, millions of Americans, and not just parents, are protecting themselves and their families with the same tool utilized by various investigative professionals across the country, and it’s easier (and cheaper) than you’d guess.
