The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act Statement
Sex Offender Registry
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, the Trinity University Police Department website is providing a link to the Texas Department of Public Safety Sex Offender Registry.
This act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement informing the campus community as to where its members can obtain state law enforcement information about registered sex offenders. It also requires sex offenders (who are already required to register with their state) to provide notice of each institution of higher education in that state at which they are employed, carry a vocation, or are a student.
In the State of Texas, convicted sex offenders must register with the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry maintained by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
To learn more, please consult Texas’ Sex Offender Registration Program or Texas’ Constitution and Statutes (specifically, the Code of Criminal Procedure, Sex Offender Registry Program, reference Article 62.153).
