A01242 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A1242B

TITLE  OF  BILL:    An  act  to amend the correction law, in relation to
subdirectory of level two and three sex offenders

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Allows New York  residents  to  receive
notice of change or update in subdirectory bye-mail in specific locality
at no charge.

SUMMARY  OF  SPECIFIC  PROVISIONS:  This  bill  amends  subdivision 1 of
section 168-q of the correction law, as amended by  chapter  10  of  the
laws of 2003 to provide that any resident of the state may register with
the division to receive e-mail notification when a registration has been
entered  or  updated   in  the  subdirectory  of level two and three sex
offenders in a geographic area specified by the resident. E-mail updates
shall be provided free of charge for specific counties or zip codes.

JUSTIFICATION: The primary purpose of the state sex offender registry is
to provide information to help New Yorkers  keep  themselves  and  their
families  safe  from  known  sex  offenders living in their communities.
While local law enforcement agencies may elect to distribute information
about registered sex offenders to the surrounding community, it is  most
often the responsibility of concerned residents to monitor the registry.
A subdirectory of the highest risk, level two and three sex offenders is
available  on  the  internet,  but  its information changes daily as new
offenders are added or existing registrants  change  their  information.
E-mail  updates  would  allow  New  Yorkers  to  keep tabs on a specific
geographic area, such as where they live or where their children  attend
school,  and  would save them the time-consuming chore of making regular
visits to the subdirectory website and having to  enter  their  personal
information before each visit.

PRIOR  LEGISLATIVE  HISTORY:  2006  - 86352 - Referred to Crime Victims,
Crime & Correction

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day after  it
shall have become a law.
