Parents for Megan's Law
Widely known as Megan's Law, the New York State Sex Offender Registration Act requires local law enforcement to provide school districts with notification and information about registered sex offenders currently residing within the boundaries of the district. The registry is maintained by the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services. There are three levels of sex offenders: Level 1 (low risk of repeat offense); Level 2 (moderate risk of repeat offense); Level 3 (high risk of repeat offense and a threat to public safety exists).
