In New Jersey, when a person registers as a sex offender, prosecutors are required to assess this person’s level of reoffending. This evaluation is based on a number of factors, including the results of a psychological evaluation, any prior convictions and the nature of these offenses. Once this evaluation is completed, the sex offender is then placed in one of three categories. These categories determine who is notified of the criminal offense.
- Tier one (Low Risk): Law enforcement agents receive notification.
- Tier two (Moderate Risk): Law enforcement, schools, community organizations, camps, licensed day care centers and other institutions receive notification.
- Tier three (High Risk): Under a high-risk assessment, the above institutions are notified, as well as local residents. In addition, the information is placed on the Internet for public consumption.
