The OffenderWatch® Initiative is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization dedicated to increasing public awareness of registered sex offenders through education, community notification, and better relations between the public and law enforcement. OWI supports legislation such as Megan’s Law, the Jessica Lunsford Act, the Adam Walsh Act, Jenna's Law, Erin's Law, and other legislation to prevent future victimization.
In response to law enforcement agencies seeking a more expanded approach to meeting community notification inquiries, OWI provides a direct mail notification service to assist law enforcement, probation, and parole officers. OWI mails millions of community notification postcards nationwide every year alerting citizens of sex offenders living in their neighborhoods. The postcards include detailed information, such as sex offenders name, address, scars, tattoos, gender, race, hair, eyes, age, weight, and conviction code.
We also work with the following partners in providing quality information regarding sexual predator laws and resources.
