Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act
Troy University 2002
The campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, Section 1601 of Public Law 106-386, was put into effect on October 28, 2002. This law is intended to guarantee that, when a convicted sex offender enrolls or begins employment at a college or university, members of the campus community will have the information that they need to protect themselves.
Specifically, this act amends or extends a number of federal laws; include the Jason Wetterling Act, Megan’s Law and the Jeanne Clery Act by requiring that:
Sex offenders who are already required to register in a given state provide notice, as required under the state’s law, of each institution of higher education in that state in which that person is a student or at which the person is employed or carries on a vacation.
State procedures ensure that this registration information is promptly made available to law enforcement agencies having jurisdiction over the area where the institution of higher education is located.
States enter this information into appropriate State records or data systems.
Institutions of higher education issue a statement, in addition to other disclosures required by law, advising the campus community where the law enforcement agency information is provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained.
In addition, the Act amends the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) by clarifying that nothing in FERPA may be construed as prohibiting as educational institution from disclosing information provided to the institution concerning registered sex offenders; and requires the Secretary of Education to take appropriate steps to notify educational institutions that disclosure of this information is permitted.
The Alabama Bureau of Investigation will provide the Troy University Police Department with a list of registered sex offenders who have indicated that they are either enrolled or employed at Troy University. These will be people that are considered adults that have been convicted of a sex offense as defined by law. Names of juveniles and those granted youthful offender status will not be released.
This list will be maintained on the Troy University Police Department website in cooperation with the TROY webmaster. The police department will be responsible for furnishing the list to the webmaster, who will in turn post this information on the website.
The list will include the following:
The Troy University Police Department will also contact the responsible person on each of the other campuses when information is received concerning a student and/or employee that is enrolled and/or employed on that campus.
Each campus will publish a statement in each Annual Campus Safety/Crime Statistics Report where this registry may be found. Anyone who has an interest in this list may go to the website to obtain the information. Additionally, each campus will publish the Alabama Bureau of Investigation website where a list of all registered sex offenders in the State of Alabama may also be obtained from http://dps.alabama.gov/.
Students or employees who have failed to properly register as a sex offender, may be removed from housing and/or the University ; and/or terminated if employed, as deemed necessary.
The Office of Student Affairs on each campus will work in conjunction with the Enrollment Management Offices to review all student applicants that indicate they have been convicted of a crime. If it is determined that the potential student is a convicted sex offender, verification will be made by the Troy University Police Department on the Troy campus. Additionally, the circumstances surrounding the conviction will be reviewed before the person is admitted to school.
The Human Resources Offices will also review the list periodically as people who apply for employment indicate they have been convicted of a crime.
Troy University will work in conjunction with the other local law enforcement offices to ensure that information is shared among departments concerning sex offenders.
