My neighborhood has always been considered a safe one. My and my neighbors never witnessed any burglaries or vandalism. I chose to live in this neighborhood a few years ago, because I knew that it was safe. Not so long ago, a relative started talking about this sex offender leaving in her neighborhood. I do not want to sound paranoid, but the conversation with her made me suspicious. Are there any sex offender living in my area? If yes, how am I going to recognize a potential offender? Is looking through a National Sex Offender Database enough to ensure that me and my family members are going to be safe from potential offenders? These are only some of the questions I started asking myself.
