Did you know that you can get automated, real-time notifications when a registered sex offender moves near an address you’re interested in? LSG Solutions created an email alert system for the Oklahoma sex offender registry back in 2015, and we’ve continued to make improvements year after year.
What we’ve improved in the last six years
One of the first significant improvements we made was establishing automated notification emails. The previous system required users to manually search addresses to verify if a sex offender lived in the area. We updated that so a user could submit their email and addresses of interest, then receive notifications when a sex offender moves nearby.
Over time, we simplified this process even further. It’s now easy to add or remove addresses for notifications. We cleaned up the email content for notifications to make pertinent information as accessible as possible. The updated system lets users categorize the addresses their tracking, and the email correspondence lets them know if someone moves near “home,” “work,” etc.
How to sign up for sex offender email alerts
You do not need to create an account to sign up for sex offender email notifications. All you have to provide is an email address, name, and the address(es) you’d like to track. Follow these steps:
- Go to the Notifications section of the Oklahoma Sex & Violent Offender Registry.
- Enter the email address you’d like notifications to be sent to, along with your first and last name.
- Click on the link in your verification email.
- Enter each address you’d like to receive notifications for. You can select the type of address it is and the radius you want information within.
After the initial registration, you’ll receive an email listing all registered sex offenders within the designated area. Moving forward, you’ll get notified every time a new sex offender moves into that area.
How to search for sex offenders in a specific area
If you’d like to complete a manual search for sex offenders in an area, go to the Search instead. You can search by name, address, appearance, etc. If you conduct a map search, you can enter an address and a desired search radius. Then you’ll see a map of the area with markers to indicate where registered sex offenders are located.
LSG Solutions puts the community first
LSG Solutions proudly serves a number of state-based agencies in Oklahoma. Due to the nature of bureaucracy, these agencies may lose sight of how their efforts directly impact their citizens. We have the citizen-based perspective that keeps systems like the Oklahoma sex offender registry as accessible and user-friendly as possible. Our goal is to make pertinent information accessible to the people interested in it while complying with state and federal requirements.No tags for this post.
