The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act was signed into law on October 28, 2000. The Act amended the Jacob’s Law and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). Its goal was to require sex offenders to provide notice of enrollment or employment at any higher education institution.
Passed as a part of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act, the CSCPA required that the information collected because of this Act be reported immediately to local law enforcement and entered into the state record systems.
The CSCPA also amended the Higher Education Act of 1965 to require institutions to disclose campus security policy and campus crime statistics to provide notice of how information concerning registered sex offenders could be found.
