Locating Sex offenders and other felons living in your area http://www.familywatchdog.us/Default.asp
usually city police departments have additional information and resources the state Megan's Law website does not have. The City of San Francisco has an interactive map feature called CrimeMAPS:
You can search areas of the city for individuals with various offenses.
That's a good site. Do remember that this is only the site for registered sex offenders; some may or may not have moved in or our of the area.
For other safety concerns, you can check with the local police stations.
The State of California administers a state-wide Megan's Law disclosure site at http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov. At this site you can find sex offenders in any county or part of the state, and see approximately where each of the offenders live. The site also provides specific information about each offender, should you have any questions about the type of offense or crime committed. Please remember that the site is for informational purposes only and cannot be used to harrass or otherwise harm these individuals.
