Visitu runs an instant sex offender background check for all visitors, and notifies selected administration via email and SMS when an offender alert occurs.
Protect those that matter most
With over 750,000 registered sex offenders in the United States; all visitors who enter your school should be checked against the National Sex Offender Registry database. Visitu automatically and instantly scans and compares all visitor information against offender database records at every sign in.
Enable Background Check
If you would like to run a sex offender background check for all visitors against the National Sex Offender Registry Database you can enable the Offender Check. We highly recommend all schools enable this feature to protect their students and staff from unknown registered sex offenders visiting their school.

Offender Alert Email
You have the ability to notify individual staff/employees on your campus via EMAIL when their is a possible sex offender alert notification. These are usually Principals, Head of Schools, Resource/Security Officers, etc. Most schools create one email address or email group specifically for this alert (example: [email protected]) Then they will forward that email address to the employees/staff on campus they want notified.
Offender Alert SMS Notification

You have the ability to notify individual staff/employees on your campus via SMS when their is a possible sex offender alert notification.
