follows:
  1. The division shall maintain a subdirectory of level two  and  three
sex offenders. The subdirectory shall include the exact address, address
of the offender's place of employment and photograph of the sex offender
along  with  the  following  information,  if  available: name, physical
description,  age  and  distinctive  markings.  Background   information
including  the  sex  offender's crime of conviction, modus of operation,
type of victim targeted, the name and  address  of  any  institution  of
higher  education  at  which  the  sex offender is enrolled, attends, is
employed or resides and a description of special conditions  imposed  on
the sex offender shall also be included. The subdirectory shall have sex
offender  listings categorized by county and zip code. Such subdirectory
shall be made available at all times on the internet  via  the  division
homepage.    THE  INFORMATION  CONTAINED  IN  THE  SUBDIRECTORY SHALL BE
SEARCHABLE VIA THE INTERNET BY THE ZIP  CODE  FOR  BOTH  THE  OFFENDER'S
RESIDENCE  ADDRESS  AND  HIS  OR HER PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT. Any person may
apply to the division to receive automated e-mail notifications whenever
a new or updated subdirectory registration occurs in a  geographic  area
specified  by such person. The division shall furnish such service at no
charge to such person, who shall request e-mail notification  by  county
and/or  zip code on forms developed and provided by the division. E-mail
notification is limited to three geographic areas per e-mail account.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day  after  it  shall
