Sex Offender Notification and Policy

Federal Law

Campus Sex Crime Prevention Act:
  • 2000 – The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act – Passed as part of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act, the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act:
    • Required any person who was obligated to register in a state’s sex offender registry to notify the institution of higher education at which the sex offender worked or was a student of his or her status as a sex offender; and to notify the same institution if there was any change in his or her enrollment or employment status.
    • Required that the information collected as a result of this Act be reported promptly to local law enforcement and entered promptly into the appropriate state record systems.
    • Amended the Higher Education Act of 1965 to require institutions obligated to disclose campus security policy and campus crime statistics to also provide notice of how information concerning registered sex offenders could be obtained.

This law requires that institutions of higher education issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained.  It is the policy of Nicholls State University to refer individuals seeking information regarding sex offenders to the Louisiana Sex Offender and Child Predator Registry which is maintained by the Louisiana State Police.
