Hawley Helps Pass Bill To Safeguard Children
Legislation to Protect Against Sex Offenders Passers Both Houses
June 24, 2009

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R, I, C – Batavia) voted in support of legislation that would help safeguard children from sex offenders by allowing residents to sign up to receive e-mail alerts when Level 2 and 3 sex offenders move into their neighborhood (A.1242-B).

“In today’s busy world, not every parent or guardian has the time to constantly check the Internet database; however, as a parent myself, I know there is nothing more important than keeping our children safe. This bill helps parents and guardians do that in a quick, free and common-sense manner for today’s world,” said Hawley.

The service would allow residents to sign up for the e-mail alerts through the Division of Criminal Justice Services website. The resident would be able to specify the geographical area of concern for them and then receive e-mail notifications if or when a Level 2 or 3 sex offender moves into that area.

The bill has been passed in both houses and is before the Governor for his consideration.
