Attorney General Roy Cooper wants people to know where sex offenders are in North Carolina.
His North Carolina Department of Justice is offering a free NC Sex Offender Registry app for Android® (version 2.2 and higher).
The app makes information mobile, using GPS information to map where offenders live wherever the mobile devices goes.
Users can also search by address, and get e-mail alerts to track specific offenders.
The app was developed by the department's information technology department and uses the SBI Registry information as submitted by county sheriffs.
