Family Watch Dog: Oprah?

Family Watch dog has received the blessing of Oprah Winfrey, which helped it grow to achieve over 4 million visitors a month. What exactly is the website about?

Family Watchdog is a new site launched by the National Coalition of Victims in Action which uses a local map search function to display sex offenders in specific areas. By using Family Watchdog, parents are able to enter their address or zip code into the site and the result is a Google powered map marking the addresses of convicted sex offenders and where they are working.

The local search service is free and is a Google Maps mashup which is powered by the sex offender registries of 44 states, created by Family Watchdog founder Steve Roddel of Indiana, who began the site in 2005.
