The Sex Offender Registration Act requires the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) to maintain a sex offender registry. The Registry contains information on sex offenders classified according to their risk of re-offending: level 1 (low-risk), level 2 (moderate-risk), and level 3 (high-risk).
The DCJS Sex Offender Registry site contains their subdirectory of level 2 and level 3 offenders, as well as, other information regarding New York State’s Sex Offender Registry. We have also compiled a synopsis of some of the basic laws pertaining to the Sexual Offender Registry.
Sex offenders registered in New York State are now required to notify the Registry of any institution of higher education at which he or she is or expects to be enrolled, attending, or employed, regardless of compensation or intended residence on or off campus. Changes in status at the institution must also be reported to the Registry no later than ten days after such change.
Once notified by DCJS of any registered sex offender enrolled or employed at the Institute, the Pratt Department of Public Safety will follow procedures to notify the Institute community.
