Convicted sex offenders are some of the most closely tracked and monitored individuals in the country. Consequently, information on sex offenders is housed in a myriad of locations, including municipalities, counties, state databases, the national sex offender registry, and the web. Keeping information current and accurate among all these stakeholders is a Herculean task. The OpenFox® Sex Offender Registry Application dramatically reduces the need for making multiple entries across varied platforms. This utility will also automatically update Web sites with the new information. This means less opportunity for error and fewer work force hours for data entry. Ultimately, better information means better protection from sex crimes and safer communities.
