If a sex offender is found to be living in a restricted area, notification letters are sent to the offender, the homeowner, and the Suffolk County Police Department.
If the offender is also living in illegal housing, summonses are issued to both the offender and the property owner. Summonses will also be issued to the owner of the property for any other violations found during the investigation.
Although the Town has no enforcement jurisdiction within the three villages, the Town follows the same notification process in each of these communities.
An inspector from QOLT is assigned to each offender who is currently violating the residency restriction law. The inspector is charged with visiting the location and confirming the residency status as well as issuing summonses for any violations that have been found.
