Pittsford Schools notified of sex offender residing in area | News
The Pittsford Central School district has been notified by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office that a registered sex offender is residing in the 14534 zip code.
The law does not permit the release of a specific address. The individual is a level-two sex offender as described in the New York State Sex Offender Registry Act (SORA).
This means that the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services has determined that the risk of a repeat offense is moderate.
More information about the individual can be obtained on the Monroe County Sheriff's website, www.monroecountysheriff.info
Residents can now register to receive direct alerts when moderate- or high-risk sex offenders move into or out of their area.
The NY-ALERT System will send alerts through email or as a text message, fax or telephone recording. Subscribers can register for up to three areas for notification. Areas are defined by county, zip code or a specific address. If a specific address is selected, the subscriber designates a radius from a quarter-mile to 25 miles around that address.
Registration can be completed at www.criminaljustice.state.ny.us.
Subscribers will receive sex offender relocation notices when a Level 2 (moderate risk) or Level 3 (high risk) sex offender listed on the public subdirectory moves into or out of a community of interest. By law, the state can only provide information about Level 1 (low-risk) offenders or those with a pending risk level through a toll-free number (1-800-262-3257).
This service is possible through a partnering of the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) and the New York State Emergency Management Office (SEMO) which manages the NY-ALERT system.
