Sex Offender Mapping Application

Disclaimer

The Sex Offender Registration Act requires the Division of Criminal Justice Services to maintain a Sex Offender Registry. The Registry contains information on sex offenders classified according to their risk of re-offending: low-risk (Level 1), moderate-risk (Level 2) and high-risk (Level 3). The Act requires that the Division also maintain a Subdirectory of Level 3 Sex Offenders. This site provides public access to that Subdirectory.

In May 1998, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York issued an injunction prohibiting the State from classifying any sex offender who committed his or her crime prior to January 21, 1996 to a risk level higher than a Level 1 for purposes of community notification, unless the offender has had an opportunity to avail himself or herself of a hearing to contest the higher risk level. Accordingly, while the injunction remains in effect, Level 3 sex offenders who committed their crime prior to January 21, 1996, and who were risk leveled prior to January 1, 2000, cannot be included in the Subdirectory.

However, on June 4, 2004, a settlement was reached in Doe v. Pataki. Therefore, the injunction prohibiting community notification of certain sex offenders will be lifted as provided in the settlement. For more information, refer to the Legal Information: Stipulation of Settlement or the Notice of Settlement.

In the interim, the Division has prepared a version of the Subdirectory, which only contains information on those registered Level 3 sex offenders who committed their crimes after the effective date of the Sex Offender Registration Act, or who have received the judicially mandated hearing.

The Division of Criminal Justice Services collects information about registered sex offenders from the registration agency, which may be a court, a State or local correctional facility or a probation or parole agency, or from the sex offender directly. Although the Division attempts to include only accurate and complete information in the Subdirectory, the Division does not independently verify registration information.

The Division updates this information regularly to try to assure that it is complete and accurate. However, this information can change frequently. Users are cautioned that the information provided on this site is information of record that is reported to the Division and may not reflect the current residence, status, or other information regarding an offender. The Division makes no express or implied guarantee concerning the accuracy of this data.

The Subdirectory contains identifying information and information about the sex offense for which the sex offender is registered. It does not reflect the entire criminal history of a listed sex offender.

The main purpose of providing this data on the Internet is to make the information more easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individual. Users are cautioned that positive identification of an individual cannot be conclusively established by comparing name, date of birth, social security number or other information with that provided in this Subdirectory. Comparisons based on appearance may also be misleading, and cannot establish a positive identification without some possibility of error.

Anyone who uses this information to injure, harass, or commit a criminal act against any person may be subject to criminal prosecution.

For additional information on any offender who has been an inmate in a Correctional Facility operated by the New York State Department of Correctional Services please refer to the DOCS Inmate Locator.

If you believe that any of the information found in these records is in error, please contact the Sex Offender Registry at the Division of Criminal Justice Services, 4 Tower Place, Albany, NY 12203-3764 or by e-mail. It will not be possible to provide an individual response in every case. However, if you give information about a sex offender it will be reviewed and processed in accordance with Division policies. If you offer your opinion on the issue of sex offender registration, it will be read and considered. If you are a sex offender with questions about your registration, please inquire in writing via United States mail to the above address, including your full name, address and date of birth for identification purposes.
