Sex Offender Registration

In accordance to the "Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act" of 2000, which amends the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, the Jeanne Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, the Keuka College campus safety office provides a link to the New York State Criminal Justice Services’ (DCJS) Sex Offender Registry for high risk (level 3) registered sex offenders. This registry can be viewed on the internet at: criminaljustice.state.ny.us/nsor or by contacting the NYS DCJS Sex Offender Registry at 518) 457-6236. Also, persons seeking to obtain sex offender registration information may contact Yates County Sheriff’s Office Records Section at (315) 536-5778.

This act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where to obtain law enforcement information provided by the state concerning registered sex offenders. It also requires sex offenders who are already required to register in a State to provide notice of each institution of higher education in that state at which the person is employed, carries a vocation, or is a student. In New York State, convicted sex offenders must register with the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry maintained by the Department of State Police.

The Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry (SOR) for violent sex offenders is available at http://www.criminaljustice.ny.gov/nsor/. Registry information provided under this section shall be used for the purposes of the administration of criminal justice, screening of current or prospective employees, volunteers or otherwise for the protection of the public in general and children in particular.
