Sex Offender Registry
In accordance to the "Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act" of 2000, which amends the Jacob
Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, the
Jeanne Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, The Central
Virginia Community College Police Department is providing a link to the Virginia State
Police Sex Offender Registry. This act requires institutions of higher education to
issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement information
provided by the State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also
requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice of
each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed,
carries a vocation, or is a student. In the Commonwealth of Virginia, convicted sex
offenders must register with the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry
maintained by the Department of State Police.
The Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry (SOR) for VIOLENT SEX OFFENDERS is
available via the Internet pursuant to Section 19.2-390.1, (D), of the Code of Virginia.
Registry information provided under this section shall be used for the purposes of the
administration of criminal justice, screening of current or prospective employees,
volunteers or otherwise for the protection of the public in general and children in
particular. Unlawful use of the information for purposes of intimidating or
harassing another is prohibited and willful violation shall be punishable as a Class 1
The Virginia State Police is responsible for maintaining this registry. Follow the link
