2002 Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act ( CSCPA )
The federal 2002 Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires colleges and universities to issue a statement advising the campus community where state law enforcement agency information concerning registered sex offenders/predators may be obtained. Registered sex offenders are also required to notify appropriate state officials of each institution of higher education at which the offender is employed or is a student.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement ( FDLE ) makes information concerning the presence of registered sexual offenders available to local law enforcement officials and the public. It is the responsibility of the county sheriff to notify the campus if an offender is enrolled or employed at the campus. The school is required to inform members of the campus community where to obtain information about such offenders.
Information regarding sexual offender / predators in our area may be found at the FDLE Website.
