The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act mandates that convicted sex offenders required to register under state law, must also disclose their association with institutions of higher education when applicable. Specifically affected are those registered sex offenders who attend as students, are employed by or employed at, or volunteer at institutions of higher education. The Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) is responsible for the Arizona Sex Offender InfoCenter.
Pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute 13-3821, a person convicted of certain sexual offenses as described in that code is required to register within 72 hours with the sheriff of the county they reside in after their release or move to a new place of residence. This law also states a person who is required to register and who is a student at a public or private institution of post-secondary education or who is employed or carries on a vocation, with or without compensation, at a public or private institution of post-secondary education shall notify the county sheriff. The person shall also notify the sheriff of each change in enrollment or employment status at the institution.
Pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute 13-3825, the Arizona State University Police Department, as the local law enforcement agency, will be notifying the campus community. ASUPD will coordinate with the local law enforcement agency responsible for the individual community notifications to ensure the sex offender notification is provided to the Arizona State University community. For ASU departments with facilities off-site from the four main campuses that may receive a registered sex offender community notification flyer from a local law enforcement agency, building managers are advised to post the flyer the building’s common area easily accessed by students, staff and faculty for a suggested time period of thirty (30) days. Specific information and instructions related to the community notification will be contained in the flyer. Any criminal activity involving a registered sex offender should be reported to the police.
Any use of this information to threaten, intimidate, harass, or create criminal act against another person will result in criminal prosecution.
