The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires states to begin collecting information from sexually violent offenders, including information regarding whether they are employed, carry on a vocation, or are a student at an institution of higher education and any changes regarding their enrollment or employment status. The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act amended the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act that was passed by Congress in 1994 as part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. California was the first state to require sex offenders who are already required to register with the police to also register with campus police when they enroll in classes or begin working at a college or university.
