|Veterans Crisis Line|
|Signed into law in 2020, the National Suicide Hotline Designation Act authorized 988 as the new three-digit number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. As part of the law, all telephone service providers in the U.S. had to activate the number no later than July 16, 2022.
Veterans can use this new option by dialing 988 and pressing 1 to contact the Veterans Crisis Line. Veterans may still reach the Veterans Crisis Line with the previous phone number—1-800-273-8255 and Press 1—by text (838255), and through chat (VeteransCrisisLine.net/Chat).
|Requesting Your New York State Criminal History|
|The Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is responsible for maintaining the New York State’s official criminal history records. The agency is the only source of these official records.
You must submit your fingerprints when you request a criminal history record response. This allows DCJS to match your fingerprints to fingerprint-based records the agency is required by law to keep.
You will get either:
A copy of your New York State criminal history record, commonly called a “rap sheet.”
A “no record” response, which verifies that you have no New York State criminal history record.
If you have submitted fingerprints as required by law for employment, licensing or other purpose (for example, adoptions), you also will see that information on your criminal history record response. These responses also may be called fingerprint-based criminal background checks, police certificates or police certifications.

Sex Offender Registry Search
Registered sex offenders are assigned a risk by judge after a court hearing: Level 1 (low risk of re-offense); Level 2 (medium risk of re-offense), and Level 3 (high risk of re-offense).
The Sex Offender Registry contains a variety of information about registered sex offenders, including but not limited to: multiple photos, names (aliases), home and/or work addresses, and convictions that required registration, if applicable.
Level 1 and Level 2 offenders are required to submit updated photos every three years; Level 3 offenders must submit updated photos annually.
Level 3 offenders and those offenders designated sexual predators must personally verify their address every 90 days with the police agency having jurisdiction where they live. If an offender's appearance has changed, police may photograph the offender and submit the update photo to the Registry.
