Dear Neighbor,

As your assemblyman, I have sponsored and supported legislation that installs safeguards to protect society from sexual predators. Gov. George E. Pataki in January signed legislation that expands and strengthens New York’s Megan’s Law by lengthening the time sex offenders remain on the state Sex Offender Registry.

The next step is enactment of a civil confinement policy allowing judges to order the most dangerous sexual predators held in secure mental-health facilities following their incarceration if they are deemed continuing threats to society.

The reality of these stronger laws is that the courts and law enforcement deal with the criminals after they have committed their heinous crimes. What you need to know is how to protect your loved ones from becoming victims. Inside is information that may help you and your family avoid becoming victims.

Sincerely yours,
Michael Fitzpatrick
Member of Assembly

Protection from online criminals

Computers and the Internet are wonderful tools that open the door to a wealth of information. But with technological advancements come advancements in crime. Parents and Internet users must be aware that children are able to access the world - and the world can access children.

Authorities nationwide are aware that pedophiles and criminals use the Internet to engage children and adolescents in sexually oriented conversations and lure them to meet without their parents’ knowledge.

These Web sites provide useful information to protect families from online predators and criminals:
