How Does Raptor Work?

How Raptor Works

Raptor checks your visitors and volunteers against the national sex offender registry via First Name, Last Name, and Date of Birth. The offender check occurs once the Raptor user selects “Submit” after scanning the ID.

If there is a potential match to an offender or a private alert, the system will present a visual alert on the screen. The alert will provide the offender/private alert information on the right side of the screen and the visitor's information on the left.

The Raptor user will be given the choice to determine if the person attempting to enter the building is a match to the alert. The Raptor user will use the information presented, including picture comparison if available, to determine if there is a match.

If the Raptor user determines the visitor is a match to the offender and clicks “Yes” when prompted, notifications will then be sent out to the e-mail addresses and phone numbers as per district policy.

If the Raptor user determines the visitor is NOT a match, they will select “No” and the visitor will be able to enter the building successfully.

Please note – Raptor does not manage the sexual offender database, we only provide the information available on the state registry. If you have any additional questions concerning the offender information that is provided, please contact the state’s offender registry.

Your Raptor Administrator has the option to set up Private alerts for visitors or students. These Private alerts can be used to flag visitors or students for issues such as custody instructions, restraining orders, trespass warnings, etc. These private alerts are managed by your school/district.
