Federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act
Registered Sex Offender Information

In accordance with the “Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act” of 2000, (section 1601 of Public Law 106-386) which amends the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, the Jeanne Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, the Macalester College Safety and Security Office is providing a link to the Minnesota State Police 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.  In the state of Minnesota, convicted sex offenders must register with the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry maintained by the Department of State Police.

The Minnesota Predatory Offender Registration and Tracking Program are available via Internet pursuant to MN Statute 243.166 Session updates.  Registry information provided under this section shall be used for the purposes of the administration of criminal justice, screening of current or prospective employees, volunteers or otherwise for the protection of the public in general and children in particular.  Unlawful use of the information for purposes of intimidating or harassing another is prohibited.
