UB Notifications

  • Warnings will indicate that a level 2 or level 3 sex offender is now enrolled or employed at the university and will indicate that further information can be obtained at DCJS by zip code (14260, 14261 & 14214).
  • Information given out on the web site may include name, address, physical description, crime of conviction, modus operandi, type of victim targeted and special conditions imposed on parole.
  • A statement as to how information about local sex offenders can be obtained will be added to the UB annual security report, as required by the Clery Act and posted here.

New York State Registered Sex Offenders and Institutions of Higher Education

  • Under amendments to "Megan's Law," adopted to comply with a federal law known as the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000, sex offenders registered in New York are required to notify the Registry of any institution of higher education at which he or she is, or expects to be, whether for compensation or not, enrolled, attending or employed and whether such sex offender resides or expects to reside in a facility operated by the institution. Changes in status at the institution of higher education must also be reported no later than ten days after such change.
  • The Law requires the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) include this information regarding an institution of higher education on its Registry and that DCJS notify the campus Public Safety Department of the presence of such an individual.
  • Information for dissemination to the campus community members includes: name, address (either home address if Level 3 offender or zip code if Level 2 offender), physical description, crime of conviction, modus operandi, type of victim targeted, special conditions imposed on parole.
  • Colleges and universities may promptly disseminate to the campus community information about Level 2 and Level 3 registered sex offenders by means of e-mail alerts, web site links, campus publications, newspaper notices, and like mechanisms campuses use to make "timely warnings" of criminal activity under the Campus Security Act. Campus community notification advises of the receipt and availability of this information. Details about the offender may be made available at the police department office or via referral to the DCJS web site.
  • The requirement applying to institutions of higher education goes into effect on October 28, 2002. Campuses must also add a statement to their Annual Security Report required by the Campus Security Act of 1990, advising the campus community where information concerning registered sex offenders transmitted to the campus by the State (DCJS) may be obtained.
