In accordance with the federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, registered sex of- fenders now are required to register the name and address of any college at which he or she is a student or employee.

You may contact the college’s chief security officer, Mr. John Flaherty, Executive Director of Institutional Services (Room 9117; 1.212.817.7761), to obtain information about Level 2 or Level 3 registered sex of- fenders on campus. To obtain information about Level 2 and 3 offenders, you may also contact the Division’s registry website at http://criminaljustice.state.ny.us/nsor/or access the directory at the college’s public safety department or police precinct.
