Sex Offender Notification
The Niagara County Sheriff's Office is responsible for monitoring the registered sex offenders living in our area. The Sheriff's Office, in partnership with the NT Police Department, compiles sex offender information and maintains it in an online directory that is accessible to the public, in an effort to keep our community informed.
Level 2 (medium risk) and Level 3 (high risk) sex offenders residing in North Tonawanda can be identified, searched and mapped by accessing the Sheriff's Office website and selecting the "Sex Offenders" tab on the homepage. You can also find further information on the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services website or call the NYS DCJS toll-free number at 1-800-262-3257.
The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office utilizes OffenderWatch, the nation's leading registered sex offender management and community notification tool. Through OffenderWatch, the Sheriff’s Office is able to manage and monitor the whereabouts, conduct and compliance status of the registered offenders in Niagara County. This tool provides the most accurate and timely information available.
OffenderWatch is updated instantaneously throughout each day as offender addresses and other offender information is updated in the office. You may enter any address in the county and see real-time information on the publishable offenders within the specified radius of the address you enter.
Offenders move frequently, so instead of having to check the maps on a weekly basis, the best way to stay informed is to take advantage of the free community notification alert system. You may confidentially register as many addresses in the county as you wish, and OffenderWatch will continuously monitor the addresses and send you an alert if a new offender registers an address within the specified radius of any address you register. There is no cost for this service and no limit to the number of addresses you can register - your email address and physical addresses are all confidential.
