We crunched the numbers and you may be surprised with how many sex offenders are living near your Hudson Valley home.

According to the New York State Sex Offenders registry 2,134 sex offenders live in the Hudson Valley. For the basis of our research we considered the Hudson Valley as Columbia, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Ulster and Westchester counties.

The Division of Criminal Services places sex offenders into four categories, level 1, level 2, level 3, and level P. Level 3 sex offenders are considered to have the highest risk of a repeat offense, while level 1 has the lowest risk of a repeat offense. Level P sex offenders are registered but their risk of a repeat offense hasn’t been determined.

Overall, Westchester has the most sex offenders, followed by Orange, Ulster and Dutchess counties. In fact, Westchester placed first in every category.

When it comes to high-risk sex offenders, 180 live in Westchester, 69 in Orange, 51 in Dutchess, 48 in Sullivan and 36 in Ulster.
