Dear Island Trees Community,
Last week I was again notified about a registered sex offender that had moved into the Island Trees community. To verify the information, I went to the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services website to search the public registry of sex offenders.
It was fairly easy to find this particular sex offender and all of the details of his crimes, including offenses and charges. I encourage all parents and concerned community members to use the website regularly to protect your children.
Please remember the Island Trees community is comprised of several towns; therefore, using the Levittown zip code in your search may not provide all of the information needed to protect your children and/or to keep you informed of all of the registered sex offenders in our area. I suggest using several zip codes within the Island Trees community (11756, 11714 and 11783), as well as those of neighboring towns.
At this date, there are six sex offenders living in Levittown and more in the other towns within our community. Therefore, I strongly encourage parents to use this site periodically in order to be informed of the sex offenders living in the neighborhood.
I believe the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services listed above may be the most up-to-date website tool for searching for New York State sex offenders. I would, however, encourage parents to use Parent’s for Megan’s Law for its other resources. The Megan’s Law website has a great deal of information to help protect your children against child predators. The “District Information” link on the Island Trees School District website has both websites connected to our homepage.
In closing, please be assured that Island Trees is dedicated to the safety of our students. I have made it a practice to send out the information to the community through our IT-gram email system. Community members can sign up to receive all of our school messages, including sex offender notification, on our email list. We will continue to work with parents and the school community to ensure a safe school community for our children.
