(MyNews4.com & KRNV) Reno, Nev. - Alert I.D., a free service provided to people across Nevada, now enables users to find out whether sex offenders are living near their homes, schools and workplaces.

"They have brought to Nevada something we wish we could have done," said Acting Department of Public Safety Director Chris Perry. "This is the perfect public-private partnership."

Alert I.D. founder Keli Wilson said she met with Mark Lunsford, a Florida man whose daughter Jessica, 9, was abducted, raped and murdered by a Tier 3 sex offender who lived across the street.

But Lunsford never knew of the man's background, because authorities in Florida never told the neighbors. He asked Wilson to institute a system that allows Nevadans to find out whether such offenders are living close by so they may protect themselves and their families.

"This is a promise we made, and a promise we kept," said Wilson. 

Once an Alert I.D. user logs into the system and provides an address, the user can see names, pictures and addresses of convicted sex offenders living nearby.
