newsday.com/Reid J. Epstein
Suffolk legislators approved a plan Tuesday to place the county's
homeless sex offenders in places that would be kept secret during the
site-selection process, though county Executive Steve Levy signaled he
would veto the measure. The legislation would create a network of
mini-shelters throughout the county and effectively close the
Southampton trailers where the homeless sex offenders have been living.
The shelters would be located in industrial areas, and no town or
legislative district would have more than one. The shelters would also
have 24-hour-a-day supervision and counseling.
