DETROIT, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 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."
