The Sex Offender and Crimes against Minors Registry program is statutorily provided through Chapter 9, of Title 9. 1 of the Code of Virginia. The registry, including the Public Notification Database, is based on the Virginia General Assembly’s decision to facilitate national sex offender registry website to publicly-available information about persons convicted of specified violent and sexual offenses.
Adult individuals found within the registry are included solely by virtue of their conviction record and applicable state law. DCJS is responsible for maintaining New York’s Sex Offender Registry, which provides New Yorkers information about sex offenders living in their communities. By law, only Level 2 and Level 3 sex offenders are listed on the public directory. This directory now posts multiple photographs of registered sex offenders, as they become available, to provide New Yorkers with additional information to keep their families safe. Additional information including conviction charge, sentence, supervision conditions if the offender is on parole or probation and vehicle information also is posted. The video includes interviews with four paroled child molesters who provide candid insight into how they preyed on their victims and important information detailing how parents can protect their children.
The program is narrated by Tina M. Stanford, director of the New York State Office of Victim Services. Offender Information Information about offenders of all risk levels, including those whose risk levels are pending, is available by calling 518-457-5837 or 1-800-262-3257. Those law enforcement agencies can release the same information about offenders that is available via the toll-free number. DCJS also offers an expedited service to the public, including to children’s camps’ operators, to improve response time to requests for checks of prospective employees against the Sex Offender Registry.
