It's an unfortunate reality of our world, but there are some bad people around. The New Jersey Sex Offender Registry provides a listing of names and locations of sex offenders all across the state.

There are 88 registered sex offenders in the Toms River area.

Search your address, see who's in your neighborhood, and keep your kids safe!

There are 5 registered offenders within one mile of our studio here in downtown Toms River, but just expanding the radius to 5 miles brings the total to 67.

The more places I search and find offenders, the more I'm inclined to never let Baby Varacchi go trick-or-treating without me.
