Sex Offender Registry

The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, enacted on October 28, 2000, went into effect October 28, 2002. The law requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice, as required under State law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, volunteers services or is a student.

Convicted sex offenders must register with the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). MPD makes registry information available to the public through: mpdc.dc.gov/service/sex-offender-registry

Convicted Sex Offenders in the state of Virginia must register with the Virginia State Police (VSP). VSP makes registry information available to the public through: sex-offender.vsp.virginia.gov/sor/
