CriminalSearches.com: Very Useful, Very Creepy

Have you ever wondered if someone you knew was a criminal?  Or did it ever cross your mind that your neighborhood might be crawling with them?  Well, check out CriminalSearches and be prepared to possibly be a little creeped out.  For now, CriminalSearches is free to the public.  You can search by person’s name and even narrow the search geographically.  You can also search for a particular neighborhood to see if anyone in the vicinity has a criminal record.  CriminalSearches will give you the names and the general nature of the offences.  Neighborhood searches provide addresses and maps!  There are also searches specific to sex offenders.  CriminalSearches even maintains a database of criminal statistics and can be configured to provide you with criminal activity alerts.

Searching is easy and the site is extremely intuitive.  The information appears to be robust.  You can find some great information here … but beware… you might not want to know who is in your neighborhood.  Like me, it could keep you awake at night!
