Sex Offender Registry: The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act (CSCPA) of 2000 is a federal law that provides for the tracking of convicted sex offenders enrolled at, or employed at, institutions of higher education. The CSCPA is an amendment to the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Act. The federal law requires state law enforcement agencies (in Connecticut, it is the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection; Connecticut State Police) to notify Charter Oak State College whenever a registered sex offender indicates that they are either enrolled, employed or carrying on a vocation at Charter Oak.
A searchable database, available to the public, is maintained by the Connecticut State Police at the following website: http://www.communitynotification.com/cap_office_disclaimer.php?office=54567.
