The New York State Sex Offender Registration Act requires the establishment of a telephone number which employers, parents, children's groups and the general public can call to determine whether an individual is a convicted sex offender who is required to register. Inquiries about individuals on the Registry can be made through the 800 number as described above. No such inquiries will be accepted by e-mail.
