Know Your Neighborhood: Bristol’s Registered Sex Offenders

Pew Research, a nonpartisan fact tank that informs the public about issues, attitudes, and trends across the country says fewer than half of American adults know most or all of their neighbors. When survey respondents were asked if they knew the names of the neighbors who live close to them, 19% of adults said they knew all of their neighbors.

Another 24% said they knew most of their neighbors. This left the majority of American adults knowing only some 29% or none of their neighbors by name.

Homefacts, a free online directory that provides lists of registered sex offenders shows 104 registered sex offenders in Bristol, CT, a ratio of 15.36 sex offenders per 10,000 residents.

This is higher than the national average of 13.72 sex offenders per 10,000 residents.

All 104 Bristol offenders as of 07/18/16 are published on Homefacts’ interactive online map.

Is your neighbor on the list? I hope not.
