The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act Statement
In accordance with the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000, which amends the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, the Jeane Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, CCBC Campus Security is providing a link to the Pennsylvania Department of Public Safety Sex Offender Registry. This act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement information provided by a state, concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a state to provide notice of each institution of higher education in that state at which the person is employed, carries a vocation or is a student.
The federal law requires state law enforcement agencies to maintain a registry of sexual offenders. In Pennsylvania the Pennsylvania State Police maintain such a registry at the following website:www.pameganslaw.state.pa.us.
All CCBC students, faculty and staff can access this site and view not only the registry but all the associated information including policy and restrictions on divulging various information about individuals. The law also states procedures requiring local law enforcement to make specific notifications to institutions of higher education when certain conditions exist. In the event that CCBC receives such notification the appropriate information will be made available to the campus community.
