Need to know if your neighbor's a felon? In Tennessee, there's an app for that

The Tennessee Department of Correction has launched a Felony Offender Search app that lets citizens look up information about past and present felons in the state from their mobile devices.

The app’s web-based companion, Felony Offender Information Look Up, is one of the state’s most used online services, with 2.5 million searches in 2014. With nearly a third of TN.gov visitors using mobile devices, state officials decided creating a mobile version of the program was an opportunity to deliver a more customer-focused tool for citizens.

Users can access an offender’s current status, location, sentencing dates and parole eligibility, and even create their own lists for faster access to information about specific offenders.

The Tennessee Felony Offender Search mobile app is available for free for both Apple and Android users.
