DETROIT, Mich., Jan. 28, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Criminal Tracker!, by U.S. Publications, Inc., is newly upgraded and improved making it even easier for its users to quickly track criminals and sex offenders in real time within a 40-mile radius.
Criminal Tracker! is user friendly and just a few clicks provide complete and current criminal profiles and photos.
Users can view hundreds of profiles for each specific zip code region and radius setting for free. They simply enter their zip code and mile range. Criminal Tracker! then quickly populates and tracks all offenders with names and addresses on a map within their chosen settings.
“The additions of the ‘Look Up’ and ‘More’ buttons have made a big difference in the functionality and usability of the Criminal Tracker! application,” Simon Gojcaj, president, U.S. Publications, Inc., says. “Now, when a user is in their zip code area, he or she can click on specific pinpoints within the maps to view complete criminal profiles of every offender within each ‘Look Up.’”
The “More” feature provides continued map page results and its new filter feature makes it possible to see the specific nature of the crime(s). For instance, was it sexual in nature? Was the person a pedophile?
“We are very excited to offer these new and improved features,” Gojcaj says. “And, our new batch system also works to prevent crashes.”
Criminal Tracker! is focused on keeping the public informed and the community safe. It works closely with law enforcement and the public to help ensure that its database is frequently updated with the most comprehensive National Criminal Index available.
“We are offering an invaluable service to our users,” Gojcaj says. “For instance, did you know that the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reports, as of August 2012, that the total number of registered sex offenders in the U.S. was 747,408; and that 60 percent of second offenses take place while living in a supervised community? And, these statistics are only the tip of the iceberg. Criminal Tracker! empowers people to take control; they have the right to know who their neighbors are to ensure the safety of their families.”

DETROIT, Mich., April 5, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — U.S. Publications, Inc. announced this week the launch of an application – Criminal Tracker – designed for the new Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It quickly tracks criminals and sex offenders within a requested 40-mile radius.
A study performed by the U.S. Department of Justice revealed that sex offenders were about four times more likely than non-sex offenders to be arrested for another sex crime after their discharge from prison – 5.3 percent of sex offenders versus 1.3 percent of non-sex offenders. And, 60 percent of convicted sex offenders are on parole or probation.
“This information is concerning,” says Simon Gojcaj, president, U.S. Publications. “That’s why we’ve decided to release this app. This app differs from similar ones in that users can enter any U.S. zip code to learn of criminals and sex offenders within a designated 40-mile range of that region in real time. Other apps only allow you to search the user’s immediate region.”
Once the zip code and mile range is entered, the app populates and tracks all sex offenders and criminals and provides names and addresses on a visual map of chosen settings.
Criminal Tracker works closely with law enforcement and the public to ensure that its database is kept up to date with the most comprehensive National Criminal Index available.
One app user said, “I could not believe who I was living by. It was a real wake-up call.”
“We live in a day and age where you just cannot be too careful,” says Gojcaj. “Neighborhood watches are often not enough and we all want to protect our children’s safety. You just never know what criminals may be lurking in your neighborhood. Criminal Tracker gives people an inside view so they are more educated and informed about local arrest warrants and more.”
Criminal Tracker’s mission is to create a better-informed citizenry, to reduce crime and to keep families as safe as possible.
Currently, Criminal Tracker is offering the first three look-ups for free.
It’s easy to use and available at: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/criminal-tracker!/id490605714?mt=8.
