Sex Offender Policy

The City of Cohoes has modified the Sex Offender Registry notice procedure in the City of Cohoes in order to provide timely, valid and appropriate information to residents of the community. The policy is effective immediately and detailed in the notice linked at the bottom of this page.

The Police Department will now notify all elected city and county officials, the Director of the Cohoes Housing Authority, the Director of Human Services, the Superintendent of Schools as well as all Neighborhood Watch Leaders. Also, bulletins will be available by appointment at the Police Department, which contain the picture and address of the Level 3 offender, as authorized by New York State Law. Previously, School District officials were the only agency notified by the Police Department.
