Sex Offender Community Notification

Published August 25, 2014 at 5:16 PM

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, enrolled, attending or employed -- and whether such sex offender resides or expects to reside in a facility operated by the institution.

In accordance with this law, the University at Buffalo will notify the campus community when a Level 2 or Level 3 registered sexual offender has become part of the campus community, either through enrollment or employment.

The individual identified in the link below is taking classes at UB, but he is not residing on campus.  While University Police do not see this as a specific threat, the university is sharing this information in accordance with the law:

Questions about this notification should be directed to University Police at 716-645-2227.
