Attorney General Roy Cooper wants people to know where sex offenders are in North Carolina.
The North Carolina Department of Justice created a free NC Sex Offender Registry app last year for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®.
The app uses GPS information to map where offenders live wherever the mobile devices goes.
Users can also search by address, and get email alerts to track specific offenders.

The office says they plan to make the app available on Android operating systems soon.
