Ohio AG Mike DeWine reveals a new reverse lookup feature that allows anyone to determine if unfamiliar phone numbers, email addresses, social media screen names, and video game handles belong to a registered sex offender.
The new feature allows anyone to input unfamiliar phone numbers, email addresses, social media screen names, and video game handles into the database to try to determine if they belong to a registered sex offender in Ohio.
“In this age of technology, knowing which sex offenders live in your neighborhood isn’t always enough,” said Attorney General DeWine. “Digital communication allows people to break geographical boundaries, and sexual predators can use this to their advantage to pose as peers and develop cyber friendships with unsuspecting children. The new reverse lookup feature is just another tool that parents can use to screen who their children are communicating with.”
