Searching for sex offenders:
State law authorizes the release of information about certain sex offenders required to register under Megan's Law. The sex offenders are classified by risk level: Level 1 (low risk); Level 2 (medium risk); and Level 3 (high risk).

Level 1 offenders are required to register for a minimum of 20 years, and Level 2 and 3 offenders for life.

Police and law enforcement have access to information on all sex offenders. However, under the law, information on Level 1 offenders is not available on the public Web site. Only Level 2 and 3 offenders are listed.

While the state Division of Criminal Justice Service (DCJS) cannot disclose if there are any Level 1 sex offenders in your neighborhood or who they are, they can report whether a particular individual is on the registry. Call 1-800-262-3257 with the name and at least one other identifier (an exact address, date of birth, driver's license number, or a Social Security number) and the DCJS will tell you if that individual is a registered sex offender in New York.

The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Service (DCJS) is barred by law from posting information on Level 1 (low level) sex offenders, or those with a pending risk level, on this public site. However, while DCJS cannot tell you if there are any Level 1 sex offenders or sex offenders with a pending risk level in your neighborhood or who they are, the agency can tell you if a particular individual is on the registry. Call us at 1-800-262-3257 with the name and at least one other identifier (an exact address, date of birth, driver's license number, or a Social Security number) and the DCJS will tell you if that individual is a registered sex offender in New York.

DCJS attempts to ensure that the information in the subdirectory is accurate and complete. However, the information is reported to DCJS by other sources. As a result, DCJS makes no express or implied guarantee concerning the accuracy or completeness of this data.

The information must be used responsibly. Anyone who uses this information to harass or commit a criminal act against any person may be subject to criminal prosecution.

Please note that because of a lawsuit filed by The Legal Aid Society on behalf of some sex offenders, not all Level 2 and 3 offenders can be listed on this site at this time. However, even though an offender may not be listed on this site, information about the offender is available at 800-262-3257.
