"Sec. 501. Subsection (g) of section 18 of public act 13-3 is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective January 1, 2014):

(g) (1) The information in the registry shall [not] be a public record [or file] for the purposes of section 1-200 of the general statutes and shall be accessible to the public during normal business hours. [Any information disclosed pursuant to this section or section 19 or 20 of this act, shall not be further disclosed unless such disclosure is permitted under this section or section 19 or 20 of this act. ] The Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection shall make registration information available to the public through the Internet. Not less than once per calendar quarter, the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection shall issue notices to all print and electronic media in the state regarding the availability and means of accessing the registry. Each local police department and each state police troop shall keep a record of all registration information transmitted to it by the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection and shall make such registration information accessible to the public during normal business hours.

(2) Whenever a person is convicted or found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect of an offense committed with a deadly weapon that will require such person to register under section 19 of public act 13-3, the court shall provide to the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection a written summary of the offense that includes a specific description of the offense. Such summary shall be added to the registration information made available to the public through the Internet.

(3) Upon the conviction or finding of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect of any person for an offense committed with a deadly weapon that will require such person to register under section 19 of public act 13-3, the court may order the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection to restrict the dissemination of the registration information to law enforcement purposes only and to not make such information available for public access, provided the court finds that dissemination of the registration information is not required for public safety and that publication of the registration information would be likely to reveal the identity of the victim within the community where the victim resides. The court shall remove the restriction on the dissemination of such registration information if, at any time, the court finds that public safety requires that such person's registration information be made available to the public or that a change of circumstances makes publication of such registration information no longer likely to reveal the identity of the victim within the community where the victim resides. Prior to ordering or removing the restriction on the dissemination of such person's registration information, the court shall consider any information or statements provided by the victim. "
