DCJS also offers an expedited service to the public, including to children's camps' operators, to improve response time to requests for checks of prospective employees against the Sex Offender Registry. Offender Information Information about offenders of all risk levels, including those whose risk levels are pending, is available by calling or Additional information including conviction charge, sentence, supervision conditions if the offender is on parole or probation and vehicle information also is posted. Level 1 offenders are required to register for a minimum of 20 years and Level 2 and 3 offenders for life view details. This directory now posts multiple photographs of registered sex offenders, as they become available, to provide New Yorkers with additional information to keep their families safe. By law, only Level 2 and Level 3 sex offenders are listed on the public directory. Also featured are three survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and a demonstration by an FBI Special Agent who details the dangers of online chat rooms. Those law enforcement agencies can release the same information about offenders that is available via the toll-free number.

There are three levels of sex offenders — Level 1 low risk of re-offense , Level 2 medium risk of re-offense and Level 3 high risk of re-offense ; risk level is set by a judge after a court hearing.
