BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn lawmaker is proposing a new state law which would create a domestic violence offender registry.

The registry, as proposed, would be similar to the sex offender registry currently in place in the state.

The registry would allow a person to go online and search someone's name to see if they had been convicted of a domestic violence crime.

Domestic violence crimes have been on the rise in recent years. In 2009, 62 cases of domestic violence were reported citywide and in 2010 the number rose to 75.
