Family Watchdog – Get to Know This Website

Every parent in America should sign up for alerts from Family Watchdog.

Boys on bikeOf course, you’d like to know why I even suggest that, since Crofton is probably safer than any neighborhood in the Baltimore-Washington area.  But this is no accident… vigilance by residents is one of the reasons.  A perfect example is the Greater Crofton Council, which made community safety the focus of their February meeting.  You can visit their website for more information about that meeting.

A few weeks ago I asked the question, How Safe Is Crofton.  In that post, I told you about a website called, where you could go online to find out for yourself about any recent incidents in the area. 

And I’m sure you’re well aware of the Maryland Sex Offender Registry, which everyone should check periodically.  Here’s another tool you may want to become familiar with, as well…  It’s called Family Watchdog.   On this site, you’ll see a map indicating both the residence and workplace of registered sex offenders.  Dryden Way, Cabrini Court, Lowell Court, Gunwood Place, Cambridge Drive, and Kemper Road are some of the nearby locations that show up when I do a search for zipcode 21114. 

One of the things families like about Family Watchdog is the free email alerts.  If there is any change, you will be notified immediately by email.   How simple is that?  I’ve received two such notices in recent weeks.

Every parent in America should set up this alert system.

NOTE:  Of course, there’s no guarantee that every sexual predator is actually registered.   And they’re as close as your child’s computer, regardless of where they live.  Be sure to keep an eye on your children’s computer cache, for their safety.
