Sex Offender Watch Online

Offender Watch

In Apache Junction, there are approximately 122 registered sex offenders. With summer around the corner the Apache Junction Police Department would like to direct our citizens to our website if you wish to see if any of these registered offenders live in or around your neighborhood.

The mapping and address feature found on the website pinpoints exactly where an offender lives and citizens can even sign up for automatic email alerts should an offender move close within any address they register (radius is specified upon registration).

“The benefit of registering for this confidential e-mail alert service allows us to monitor your important addresses for you, thereby keeping you up to date of newly registered offenders and making it unnecessary for you to have to check your important addresses daily or even weekly,” Police Chief Thomas E. Kelly said. “You can register any and all of the addresses where your children spend a lot of time, for example friends, grandparents, or babysitters addresses. While this does not ensure total safety it does alert one to the environment around them and to be more cognizant.”

The alerts are in real-time and sent out via e-mail as soon as a new offender has registered with the police department.

The website for the department is www.ajcity.net/police. Scroll down to “Offender Watch- See the Sex Offenders living in your area” and follow the instructions to check the neighborhood and sign up to receive e-mail alerts. Also be sure to check out our safety tips with many topics to review helping you and your family understand what you can do to help stay safe.

Chief Kelly encourages everyone to have a safe and fun summer. Knowledge is power and knowing where the registered sex offenders reside in your area can help you make the best choices for safe and enjoyable summer activities.

For further information, please call the Community Resource Coordinator at (480) 474-5442.
