Stopping the Next Phillip Garrido Before He Strikes

From Cyber Space To Your Space: Stopping the Next Phillip Garrido Before He Strikes

Leading online search company Search Systems ( launches Web site that allows public to locate pedophiles, other criminals residing in their ZIP codes. 

— Search Systems, the established leader in online searches, today unveiled a new weapon against sex offenders and common criminals: the New Neighbor Alert System. This proprietary technology was developed by Search Systems of Newbury Park, Calif. and is found exclusively at (

The concept is simple: users enter a ZIP code and instantly learn for free how many people with criminal records have moved in that area the last 18 months. For an additional $24.95, they can view the name, address and criminal history of every person identified. The New Neighbor Alert also provides an interactive Bing Virtual Earth map of all offenders. Users can access a special feature to view an offender’s name, address and move-in date, or click on an icon to view specific details for each offender.

The Web site’s inventor, Tim Koster, said, “This really is a remarkable program and needed more than ever, particularly in light of the Garrido kidnapping case. I think people are more and more concerned about who’s living in their midst.” Phillip Garrido, a known sex offender, and his 54-year-old wife Nancy, were recently charged with kidnapping, raping and then falsely imprisoning Jaycee Dugard. Dugard was taken from a bus stop in South Lake Tahoe in 1991. “When you consider that a typical nationwide criminal search on just one person costs between $15 and $50, the New Neighbor Alert is truly a bargain,” Koster added.

“This service not only identifies sex offenders before they’ve even registered but tells you about released inmates, career criminals, drug dealers, people with outstanding weapons charges, shoplifters, common thieves, drunk drivers and even those with offenses as small as speeding tickets. I know of no other Web site that can offer this much information to the general public at such an affordable price.”
