Do you know your neighbors???

How well do you know your neighbors? What about the neighbors next to your child's friends home? The babysitter's neighbors? We live in a era where knowing is half the battle.  Family Watch Dog is a great tool in helping to know where offenders live. According to their site:

1 of 5 girls and 1 of 6 boys will be molested before their 18th birthday.

90% of all sexual assaults against children are committed by someone whom the victim knew.

The typical sexual predator will assault 117 times before being caught.

The re-arrest rate for convicted child molesters is 52%.

Those are scary statistics. Shouldnt we know who lives by our children? So sign up on Family Watch Dog today. They will notify you when an offender moves in or out of your neighborhood. If you live in California, you can also check out Megans Law.
