Under the provisions of New York State’s Sex Offender Registration Act, also known as “Megan’s Law,” the Cheektowaga Police Department may release information to the local school districts about certain registered sex offenders living in the community.
We are dedicated to keeping our children safe while they are in school. Keep in mind that use of the Internet may open the door to sexual predators. Open communication about personal safety and prevention can make children less vulnerable targets. We encourage you to talk to your children about being safe. We encourage you to take the responsibility of checking the websites noted below for up-to-date information regarding all levels of sex offenders. Websites contain more current information which will allow you to make decisions about safety more frequently and more accurately.
