Sex Offenders Search

Whether you have been living in your family home for years or relocating to a new city or even a new neighborhood in your same town, then a sex offenders search can be a prudent first move.

In this day and age sex crimes, not only against minors but adults as well are on the rise. Let’s face it, things are not like they used to be in the sixties and seventies when you could trust most people.

If you are moving to a new location, across town or across the country then you may want to look into more than just property values and the best places to shop near your home. Finding out who your neighbors are could save you and your family a lot of future turmoil.

A sex offenders search can be done as simply as going online to a number of well maintained and informative websites. It can take only a few minutes to save you and your loved ones a lifetime of trouble. One such website is provided and maintained by the U.S Department of Justice, and is named The Dru SJODIN NATIONAL SEX OFFENDER PUBLIC WEBSITE. This website is up to date and allows you to search for offenders nationwide as well as The District of Columbia and other U.S. territories. Family Watchdog is another good website to perform a search for sex offenders in your area. Also check with your local police department for any information on searches related to sex crimes.

Keep Your Family Safe: Know The Sex Offenders In Your Area

Civil Records

Sex Offenders In Your Area

Keeping ourselves and our children safe is a daily challenge, one we should never take lightly. Letting your child play in your own backyard might be as dangerous as letting them play in the street if you have a sex offender living in your area. You cannot know who is a sex offender just by looking at them. It is not written across their forehead in red ink. They often look just like anyone else and can be friendly.

You will not know a sex offender just by looking at them, but you can know one when they are listed on the sex offender registry. Sex offenders are required to register so their names can be put on the list. It is often a part of their release from jail. Violating that recommendation is often grounds for the offender to go back to jail. There are a few Websites that are reliable and will give you a location on every offender in your neighborhood. You can do your own offender search. One of those Websites is called familywatchdog.us. To find the offenders in your area, you can search by street, city and state. The U.S. Department of Justice has a Website for the tracking of national sex offenders too. These are databases that you can do an offender search, and it will show you pictures and addresses of those criminals who are registered sex offenders.

Dirk Monseur Violated Laws For Sex Offenders

[ hana-code-insert ] 'IntelligatorNew' is not found

A sex offender that was arrested before has been arrested again in Charlotte North Carolina for not complying with the terms of sex offender laws. Dirk Walker Monseur, Jr. (Dirk Monseur), 34, violated the terms put in place for sex offenders by helping a team consisting of children six to eight years old.

The felony arrest happened at Granite Falls Park after parents said he volunteered to help the parents of the children with a normal practice session. Sex offenders are not allowed to be around children following a conviction in the state.

Though Monseur is not the father of any of the children, he allegedly has a relationship with at least three of the young players’ mothers.

Monseur previously served a 2 1/2 year prison term for not complying with sex offender laws because he failed to sign the registered offenders list. This infraction may get him more jail time, there is no sign of him violating any of the children.

However, North Carolina does not take that into consideration. The laws in North Carolina prohibit any registered sex offender to be on the premises of any place that has to do with minors.

The observer reports this includes any place that minors may come together for social events, recreational events or educational program. It makes sense to say Monseur’s helping a youth team classifies as such a place.

Parents are now for certain their kids are safe. If a parent is unsure about someone in their area, they can do an offenders search online. A basic offenders search is  free of charge.

5 Ways to Fight Crime Without Endangering Yourself

Civil Records

Domestic crimes continue to happen even though authorities maintain and execute specific measures to curb such instances. Maybe this is because of economic problems that drive people to do things that they don’t normally do. Or maybe, there are just too few law enforcers who can watch over communities’ and people‘s welfare. There are still a host of other reasons why crime rates are on the rise despite police efforts. Although this may be a scary thought, people should empower themselves. The public can join it efforts to curb criminal activities because people can do a lot to fight crime; and they don’t have to be super heroes to do it.

1. Join Neighborhood Watch Programs and Other Community Associations 

Neighborhood Watch programs are created in order that people in a certain place will be able to better monitor their surroundings. When someone from a neighborhood notices something strange, a car or an individual perhaps, then the person from the neighborhood is responsible for reporting this. Hence, joining a neighborhood watch program encourages self-protection. Your neighbors watch over you and your family and vice versa. Apart from this, these types of community groups encourage neighbors to get to know each other better; thus, forming closer relationships and promoting community awareness and participation

2. Immediately Report a Crime

911 is the number to call for emergencies or criminal incidents, like robbery, suspicious activity, or public disturbance. When something bad happens to you or your neighbor, every second counts. So make sure to call the authorities right away. Here are a few pointers when calling 911:

– As much as possible, know the nature of the complaint.

– Give the correct address. With all that’s going on, it’s easy to forget a vital piece of information. But when a crisis arises, be level- headed and make sure to provide the authorities with the right address.

– Provide descriptions of the following: suspect, car or vehicle used, location and direction of the car when it was driven away.

– Give the correct time and date; and take note of extraordinary circumstances, such as snow, heavy rain or thunderstorm.

– Whether you’re a victim or a witness, be prepared to be interviewed and cooperate with the police.

3. Volunteer in Crime Prevention Campaigns

Crime prevention campaigns seek to influence people, most especially the youth, to follow the law. Such programs reiterate why ordinances should be followed and it also explains the dire consequences of rule-breaking.

4. Be Involved in Tracking Criminals

Criminals thrive in anonymity, which is why it’s important that their identities become known. So, make an extra effort to be informed about open criminal cases in your community, including neighboring towns or cities. Be updated and listen to community news as there are details that could largely impact your neighborhood. In addition to this, participate in tracking criminals by reporting any suspicious activity.

5. Use Technology to Your Advantage

Your gadgets are your weapons. Digicams and smartphones can readily take shots of fishy individuals. Have these handy as your pictures can be used as evidence regarding a crime. Online, do your share of watching out for cyber criminals. Use anti-spyware and antivirus software to protect yourself from identity theft, for instance. If you are a parent, discuss with your kids the dangers of engaging in chats with people that they don’t know. Remind them that there are online predators out there. It’s also important to report suspected online predators to the proper authorities immediately. Remember that cyber crimes are becoming more rampant and victims of such crimes include young children.

International Child Abuse Club Busted and Cooked Babies in the News

Casey Anthony has been booked into the Orange ...

With talk of the Casey Anthony case plastered all over the news and search results, it can be difficult to weed through the drama and find updates on real news concerning cases of child abuse, neglect and murder. Unfortunately, there are definitely more horrifying things going on right now than a drawn-out suspected murder case that everyone is tired of hearing about.

For instance, a sickening case of international child abuse was recently uncovered. As of today, August 3, 2011, a group of at least 72 identified individuals, including 43 from the United States, are being charged for circulating pictures and participating in an online forum used to promote child abuse and rape. The investigation is still ongoing, and it originally targeted 600 private members of this twisted, international child abuse network.

Participants in the network attempted to conceal their identities and locations by using proxy servers – unfortunately, authorities are unable to fully identify some of the participants, and now only have their user names with which to work.

However, it is now known that members were spread across at least 13 different countries, including France, Germany and Switzerland. So far, there have only been 43 arrests made in the United States, and a total of 9 spread across the rest of the 13 countries.

There were different levels of membership to the forum, including a “Super VIP” section that required participants to maintain their status by consistently uploading pictures and other content depicting children they had molested and physically abused. While the thought of such a large-scale child abuse operation is horrifying enough, some of the children posted on the forum were infants.

On a lesser scale, but just as sickening, a California mother is involved in an ongoing trial for allegedly trying to cook her baby in the microwave.

The case was opened in March, and the woman is now scheduled for an August 26 hearing that will determine if she is guilty of murdering her 6-week-old infant in a microwave. Although the proceedings are currently on hold due to lack of evidence, the injuries that killed the infant girl have already been identified as microwave burns.

Civil Records

According Ka Yang’s attorney, Linda Parisi, she may be suffering from psychological problems. In any event, the child was found in the suspect’s home already dead from the burns she sustained. The mother has already been charged with one count of murder due to the intentional and involved torture.

Six Safety Tips for Teens Travelling Abroad

[ hana-code-insert ] 'IntelligatorNew' is not found

Teen travel is a booming industry. Shopping, friends and travel are all on a teen’s list of top priorities. How high is safety on that list?

You may have seen the movies “Hostel 1 & 2” and “Taken.” Is it horror at its worst or a glimpse into the potential problems teens may face when traveling abroad? Sure, these movies are a lot scarier than teen travel and you probably laughed at the reference, but safety is no joke.

Passport Safety

Does a traveling teen know about passport safety tips? A passport should always be on your person. True, many European hotels and hostels require you leave your passport at the front desk, whether you are checking-in or leaving the property for the day or evening. Make several complete copies of your passport prior to leaving home…in color if possible.

Leave a copy of your passport at home with family or friends, pack one in your suitcase (which you can carry with you as you sight-see abroad) and, if possible, a copy with a traveling companion or tour leader.

Know Your Rights

As a citizen of the United States, you have certain rights when you travel abroad. A United States Consulate, in the country where you travel, is where you need to seek help if you find yourself in trouble or if your passport goes missing.

Phone Calling Tips

Dialing abroad is slightly different from domestic calls. Learn the international phone dialing code, as well the particular country code of the area. You should also learn how to call your home numbers from the specific countries visited.

Know the Culture

You will want to do some research on the country you are planning to visit. Know the location of the US Consulate, and be aware of any peculiar laws you may accidentally find yourself challenging. This is especially true of Eastern Europe and the Middle East. To avoid unnecessary trouble abroad, remember that what we generally consider fun and games at home may cost you some headaches when traveling.

Safety in Numbers

Always try to stay together when out for the night. Walking in a strange city, at night can be dangerous enough. If you add alcohol or partying to the mix, you may be opening yourself up unnecessary harm when taking a short cut down a wrong alley, for example.

Watch for Crime

There are so many tricks and frauds, to be aware of when traveling. A common trick involves one person lingering at one end of a street who sends a signal to another person on the next block, indicating you are a good target for harm or theft. Another good example is Italy, where pick pocketing is an art form

Following a few guidelines can make the difference between a fun trip and a frightening brush with danger. By traveling smart, teens can have a truly memorable gap year and enjoy their time away from home.

 

Jessica Bosari writes blogs and articles for AdventuresCrossCountry, a site that helps teens and young adults find teen camps and gap year programs.

3 Leading Causes of Childhood Injuries [and Ways to Avoid Them]

Civil Records

As a parent you want nothing more than to keep your child safe and secure. And knowing how to prevent the leading causes of child injuries—like falls, motor vehicle injury and poisonings—is a step toward this goal.

Here’s what you need to know.

Falls

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries for all children ages 0 to 19. Every day, about 8,000 children are treated in emergency rooms for fall-related injuries. That’s about 2.8 million children a year.

Thankfully, many falls can be prevented. Here are three simple, but life-saving tips:

  • Examine playground equipment. Is it properly designed? Properly maintained? Is there a soft landing surface?
  • Install safety guards on all above ground-level windows, stair gates and guard rails.
  • And make sure your child wears proper protective gear when playing active sports, such as a helmet when they are riding a bicycle.

Motor Vehicle Injuries

In the U.S., traffic accident injuries are the leading cause of death among children. In 2005 alone, 1,335 children ages 14 years and younger died as occupants in motor vehicle crashes. Approximately 184,000 were injured.

What’s the cause of all these deaths and injuries? Intoxicated drivers, unrestrained children and improper use of car and boosters seats top the lists. Fortunately, many of these deaths can be prevented. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Place a child in an age- and size-appropriate car seat. This reduces serious and fatal injuries by more than half.
  • Place children under 8 years old and less than 4’9” in a booster seat.
  • Children under 12 years old should always ride in the back seat. Never place a child in front of an air bag.

Poisoning

A poison is any substance that can harm a child if too much is eaten, inhaled, injected, or absorbed through the skin. This includes medications. Sadly, seventy-nine percent of all poison control center cases involve children. Sixty-four percent occur in children under age 5. It’s estimated 70 percent of accidental poisonings are preventable.

So want can you do to keep your child from unintentionally poisoning himself? Here are nine quick tips.

  • Know what products can be dangerous—and keep them out of reach of children.
  • Put the poison control number, 1-800-222-1222, on or near every home telephone—including your cell phone.
  • Keep all drugs in medicine cabinets.
  • Avoid taking medicine in front of children because they often copy adults.
  • Never call medicine “candy.”
  • Avoid putting your next dose on the counter where children can reach them.
  • Do not leave household, lawn or car products out after using them.
  • Install safety latches to all cabinets.
  • Identify poisonous plants in your house and yard and put them out of reach of children.

By following the simple tips above, you will dramatically reduce the chances that your child will be injured by a fall, motor vehicle accident or poisoning and help him or her develop into an healthy, active person.
