In accordance with the federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, registered sex offenders now are required to register the name and address of any college at which they are a student or employee. The New York State Division of Criminal Justice maintains a registry of convicted sex offenders and informs the college’s chief security (public safety) officer of the presence on campus of a registered sex offender as a student or employee. You may contact the college’s chief security officer, Mr. John Flaherty, Director of Security and Public Safety (Room 9117; 1.212.817.7761), to obtain information about Level 2 or Level 3 registered sex offenders on campus. To obtain information about Level 2 and 3 offenders, you may also contact the Division’s registry Web site at http://www.criminaljustice.state.ny.us/nsor/search_index.htm or access the directory at the college’s public safety department or police precinct.
