BILL NUMBER:S1093

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the correction law, in relation to the employment address of
sex offenders

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To authorize law enforcement to disseminate a Level 2 sex offenders
place of employment address to vulnerable populations.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Amends Section 168-f (4) of correction Law to require a sex
offender to notify DCJS within 10 days of any change in employment
address.

Section 2: Amends Section 168-l (6-b) of Correction Law to authorize
appropriate law enforcement to release a Level 2 sex offender's exact
address and address of the offender's place of employment to
vulnerable populations.

Section 3: Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Chapter 106 of the Laws of 2006 added moderate-risk Level 2 sex
offenders (in addition to current law's high-risk Level 3's) to the
Internet Sex Offender Subdirectory maintained by the Division of
Criminal Justice Services. When accessing this website, in addition
to a Level 2 sex offender's picture, the concerned public can now
obtain a Level 2 sex offender's exact home address and place of
employment address. However, the 2006 law failed to provide law
enforcement the authority to provide this essential information when
notifying vulnerable populations of a Level 2 sex offender's presence
in their communities. Under current law, law enforcement may only
provide a Level 2's zip code and is prohibited from releasing such
offender's employment address. This bill corrects this discrepancy by
making the same identifying information pertaining to Level 2 sex
offenders that is available to the general public through DCJS's
website available to law enforcement for dissemination purposes.

law,  such  information  shall,  upon  request, be made available to the
