    Where the offender lives is not really the concern (although it is a subjective matter contingent upon their offense and high risk factors for re-offending). What is important is what individuals do to safeguard themselves and teach personal safety to their children. 60% of offenders are known to the victim, 30% are family members of the victim, leaving %10 that are strangers to the victims. Quite honestly, I think the community would be safer knowing where the violent (sexual and non-sexual) offenders are.

    People are worried about a REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER living down the street when they are allowed to have Social Media access? Why worry that they are living next to you when they have the ability to groom your children from their computers and phones. In reality the REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER is already in your child's bedroom. Do you think this should be changed? GET EDUCATED ON THIS SUBJECT BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.

    Now this is just crazy. I went to the New York State Sex Offender Registry and did a search on the sex offenders in the zip codes of Highland, Marlboro and Milton. I found level 2 and 3 sex offenders that MAY be repeat offenders that have FACEBOOK pages with students from the Highland School district listed as friends. Crazy...Crazy...Crazy...stuff.
    I WENT TO THE NEW YORK STATE SEX OFFEDER REGISTRY AND REPORTED WHAT I FOUND AND HERE IS WHAT THEY JUST SENT ME.
    Please be advised, the New York State Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA) does not prohibit an offender from having a Facebook or other social networking account. As the Registry has no authority to prohibit offenders from having these accounts or to investigate these issues, you are advised to contact the social networking site directly.
    Please be further advised, offenders are required to provide the New York State Sex Offender Registry with their e-mail accounts, internet service providers and screen names used for social networking purposes. Failing to provide this information is a crime. If you feel that the offender may not be in compliance with his offender obligations by failing to have provided the required internet information to the Registry, you may wish to contact your local law enforcement agency so that they may investigate the matter
    Thank you for your inquiry.
