A01242 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A1242B
 
SPONSOR: Lancman (MS)
  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.

    13  tion is limited to three geographic areas per e-mail account.
