The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act

The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act is a federal law enacted on October 28, 2000 that provides for the tracking of convicted, registered sex offenders enrolled as students at institutions of higher education, or working or volunteering on campus. The act requires that state procedures ensure that this registration information is promptly made available to law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction where the institutions of higher education are located and that it is entered into appropriate State records or data systems. These changes took effect October 28, 2002. These requirements are tied to state eligibility for certain types of federal grant funding and must be implemented through state law. Institutions are also required to issue a statement, in addition to other disclosures required under the Clery Act, advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained.
