The first thing to do is know who lives near you. Maine Sex Offender Registry can be found in all communities, including yours. Knowing where they live helps keep your family safe from people that are convicted of sex crimes against children and adults. If you have a computer or smartphone, it’s easy to find out if someone has been registered as a sex offender in the last few years by doing a simple search on their name or address.

Make sure to also teach your children never to share any personal information about themselves with anyone online.
Parents are the most important role models for young people and can have a significant influence on their decisions for behavior, dress and attitudes in life. So talk openly with them! Helping keep our kids safe starts at home within families- so let’s work together as parents, educators, law enforcement agencies and community organizations to make our communities safer places for all of us by protecting those who live there from registered sex offenders!
