Say hello to Criminal Tracker, a new app from U.S. Publications that allows the user with just a few clicks to track the location and obtain photos and information about criminals. Company officials say it works within a 40-mile radius and offers comprehensive information about convicted criminals who may be in a neighborhood.

More from the U.S. Publications press release:

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.

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.

The app is available for $1.99 and the company says the first three look-ups are free.

U.S. Publications President Simon Gojcaj shared one of the reasons they created the app:

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.
