The list of 32,994 registered offenders is on "Sex Offender Locator Application" on the New York State Public Safety Facebook Page. It was launched by the Division of Criminal Justice Services on Monday.
Using the application is simple. Users have the option to either search for offenders by last name, county or zip code. After a search is entered, a list of offenders is generated. Users can click on each name to get a mugshot and address of the registered sex offender along with other identifying information.
