The Sex Offender Registration Act (Act) requires the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (Division) to maintain a Sex Offender Registry. The Registry contains information on sex offenders classified according to their risk of re-offending: low-risk (Level 1), moderate-risk (Level 2) and high-risk (Level 3).
The Act requires that the Division maintain a Subdirectory of Level 3 Sex Offenders and that the Subdirectory be accessible to the public. The Act also permits a law enforcement agency, such as the Genesee County Sheriff's Office, to disseminate limited information about Level 2 Sex Offenders. The site provides public access to information from the Division's subdirectory of Level 3 Sex Offenders and to information about Level 2 Sex Offenders that the Sheriff's Office has decided to release. Information on sex offenders may also be obtained by calling the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services Sex Offender Registry at 1-800-262-3257 or at www.criminaljustice.state.ny.us.
The Division collects information about registered sex offenders from the registration agency, which may be a court, a State or local correctional facility or a probation or parole agency, or from the sex offender directly.
