How A "Sex Offender Search" Can Benefit You

There are tons of sex offenders roaming around in the world as we know it. We see a news story about it nearly every day and it’s quite scary. It usually involves an older individual caught trying to coerce a younger individual to do sexual acts against their will. Immediately when we hear information like this, several thoughts start to populate in our brains. Will my child be okay the next time they walk to school? What if they encounter a sex offender near the school? Sexual predators are known for hanging around schools to lure young children in with the promise of gifts or threats towards their family.

Who Can Benefit From This Service


As a parent, you want to make sure that your child is safe at all times. To see that through, it is crucial to know who lives in your neighborhood. Not only should you be concerned with your neighborhood, but also concerned with friends or family as well. Usually a sexual assault victim knows their assailant prior to the attack. Sometimes it is the people that we are closest to that we have to watch out for. When it comes to your child, you cannot trust anyone. Be sure to check the National Sex Offender Registry next time you move into a new neighborhood.

Business Owners:

When you have a business, it’s important to know who works for you and represents your company. As a business owner, you want to ensure that you have the best workers. But time is of the essence and sometimes it’s hard to manually evaluate these things when you have so much going on already. The sex offender by employer search feature on Kiwi Searches does the hard work for you and eliminates the time consuming efforts. The last thing you want is unwanted attention to your business and risk going bankrupt because of it.


There’s never a bad time to be cautious when going on a date with a guy. If you don’t know the history of the person you just started dating, you’re putting your safety at risk. Plenty of sex offenders have been making online dating profiles and the other person doesn’t know their past. They simply don’t put their criminal record on their dating profile. It’s worth performing a sex offender search or person search to ensure that your date isn’t a sex offender.

Sex Offender Levels

The level assigned to an offender depends on the crime committed. What decides the level of risk of the person is the nature of the crime and the people, or children, that were involved. Another aspect taken into consideration is how likely the individual is to commit the offense again. Congress passed the Adam Walsh Act in 2006, which established three tiers to categorize sex offenders. The Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) of Title I requires these federal guidelines to be followed. If not, a penalty will be faced. The plea or conviction in which the person was sentenced bases what tier they’re assigned.

Tier I Offenses

A “Tier I” offense is considered a level one sex offender. This category defines people who committed non-violent crimes against others. It is also an attempt or conspiracy to commit the offense. Examples of Tier I offenses include:

  • Public indecency
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Sexual contact without consent

Tier II Offenses

A “Tier II” offense is considered a level two sex offender. These offenses are usually non-violent as well, but involve minors. An individual convicted of this tier must register on the Sexual Offender Registry for no less than twenty-five years. This needs to be verified twice a year. Examples of Tier II offenses include:

  • Any sexual act/contact with people between the ages of 12-15
  • Using bribery methods to elicit sexual activity
  • Prostitution of minors

Tier III Offenses

A “Tier III” offense is also considered a level two sex offender. These offenses are the most dangerous type of sex offender. Individuals labeled this way have commited violent sexual acts, with minors or adults. This tier requires the individual to register on the Sexual Offender Registry for a lifetime and has verification for each quarter. Examples of Tier III offenses include:

  • Sexual acts forced upon victim
  • Sexual acts with the victim rendered unconscious
  • Sexual acts with a victim under the age of 12

Sex Offender Levels

Around twenty-one states have laws that restrict where registered sex offenders can live or visit. The most common type of restriction prohibits a sex offender with a criminal record from living within a certain distance of a specified place where children congregate, like a school or church. These distance markers usually range from 1,000 to 2,000 feet from the designated place.

Why You Should Run A Sex Offender Search

It can be a daunting task to obtain information about sex offenders from a reverse phone search, so instead we ask ourselves questions such as: “Are there sex offenders in my area?” “Is my child safe to walk to school?” These are all things that are questioned when we hear scary things like this. It is in our natural instincts as humans to worry about the danger of our loved ones and to prevent it as much as possible. So, make the smart decision, run a sex offender search with Kiwi Searches always. You’ll be surprised when you find out the results.

Success Stories

“My wife and I had just gotten married and were looking to move across the country to a new home for our future children. We did a ton of online searching to find our dream home and neighborhood. After we found the place we thought would be perfect for us, we flew over and checked it out in person. It was absolutely beautiful! My wife was ready to purchase it in a heartbeat, but I wanted to learn a little more about the area. I talked with one of the neighbors and did a background check on him with Kiwi Searches. He was a registered sex offender. There’s no way we could have raised our children with someone like that around. Luckily, we found another home we love just as much, without any shady characters.”
