Registered Sex Offender Notification
The completeness of this information is contingent on the timely notification by the registered sex offender as well as the agencies reporting to the JCCC Police Department.
The federal 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 may be obtained. The act also requires registered sex offenders to provide to appropriate county and state officials notice of each institution of higher education in that state at which the offender is a student.
In accordance with Kansas State Statute 22-4904 ("Registration of Offender"), convicted sex offenders in Kansas must register with the county sheriff within 3 days of establishing permanent or temporary residence.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation makes information concerning the presence of registered sexual offenders available to local law enforcement officials and the public. It is then the responsibility of the county sheriff or the municipal police chief to make required notification to all community members of the presence of registered offenders in a manner deemed appropriate by the sheriff or police chief.
It is the responsibility of the county sheriff to notify institutions if an offender or predator is enrolled, employed or carrying on a vocation at the college. The JCCC Police Department is required to inform members of the campus community where to obtain information about such offenders.
Any member of the JCCC community who wishes to obtain further information regarding sexual offenders on campus may refer to the KBI website searchable database. The KBI searchable database may be used to find all registered sex offenders in any city, county or ZIP code in the state.
