The Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act and the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000

The Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act of 2000 sets the requirements for sexual offender registration. The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000 provides for the tracking of convicted sex offenders enrolled at or employed by institutions of higher education. Registered sex offenders are required to provide notice to the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) of each institution of higher education at which that person is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student. Information regarding Level 3 sex offenders is available at the DCJS.

In limited circumstances, JCC may choose to notify the college community regarding Level 3 or Level 2 sex offenders on campus. Such notification shall be done via the college website. Faculty, students, or staff wishing to inquire further about the presence of registered sex offenders at JCC should contact the director of human resources and campus-wide safety.

Law enforcement agency information provided by the state concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained through New York Department of Criminal Justice Services’ Sex Offender Registry or you may also contact the NY DCJS Sex Offender Registry at 518.457.6236 or 1.900.288.3838.
