TransAlerts are short electronic messages sent by the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) via the New York State Emergency Management Office's NY-ALERT system. TransAlerts are sent to subscribers informing them, in near real-time, of significant transportation-related incidents occurring on major highways and the greater transportation network in the state. TransAlerts can be delivered as e-mails or as text messages to cell phones.
TransAlerts are issued only for the most serious and unexpected events that have a high degree of impact on travel. This can include incidents on highway, rail or aviation systems. TransAlerts contain information about the nature of an incident, its location and additional important information to the traveling public. The Department updates TransAlerts during the course of an incident, as necessary, and will inform subscribers when an incident has been cleared.
NYSDOT believes that by providing the public with current and accurate information about the transportation network, the safety, reliability, and efficiency of personal and commercial travel in New York State can be enhanced. https://www.nysdot.gov/main/511
The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services uses NY-ALERT to send New Yorkers notices – via e-mail, text message, fax or telephone – whenever a moderate or high-risk sex offender listed on the public subdirectory of the New York State Sex Offender Registry moves to, or from, a community of interest to them and their family.
Individuals can register to receive relocation notices through NY-ALERT for Level 2 (moderate risk) and Level 3 (high risk) sex offenders. Individuals can register up to three areas, either by county/municipality, zip code or specific address, or any combination of those three options, for which they would like to receive sex offender relocation alerts. If a specific address is selected, a radius around that address, ranging from a quarter-mile to 25 miles, also must be selected.
Sex offender relocation notices will be triggered when addresses are changed for Level 2 and 3 sex offenders listed on the registry’s public subdirectory, which is part of the DCJS website (http://www.criminaljustice.state.ny.us/nsor/search_index.htm
). Registry staff process address changes within 24 hours of receipt, Monday through Friday, during regular business hours.
The law allowing the state to provide relocation alerts excludes Level 1 (low risk) sex offenders and offenders whose risk level is pending. By law, the state can only provide information about low-risk offenders or those with a pending risk level through a toll-free number (1-800-262-3257).
