BILL NUMBER:S4146

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the correction law, in relation to the sex offender registry

PURPOSE:
To implement changes to the sex offender registry, mandating that the
registry contains information pertaining to the type of
supervision(probation or parole) an offender receives and also
contains information about the length of time of the assigned
supervision.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
To amend Paragraph (c) of subdivision 1 of section 168-b of the
correction law, as amended by chapter 11 of the laws of 2002 is
amended by mandating that the Sex Offender Registry contains
additional information such as type of assigned supervision and the
length of time of such supervision, which shall also be actively
maintained and updated to reflect any changes in an individual's
treatment program.

JUSTIFICATION:
Currently the Sex Offender Registry is maintained by the Division of
Criminal Services (DCJS) and only provides the Maximum Expiration
Date/post Release Supervision Date of Sentence. The Sex Offender
Registry needs to be changed so that the length of time of assigned
supervision is actively maintained and updated to reflect any changes
in the Offender's treatment/supervision. In order to protect the
interests of the individuals currently using the Sex Offender
Registry to keep their families safe, this additional information
should be mandated to be added and actively updated to ensure that
the appropriate individuals know when an offender stops receiving
supervision.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
A.10777 (2010) Correction/Passed

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
