Registered Offenders on Campus

A federal law, the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act amendment to the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, requires registered sex offenders to indicate when they are enrolled or employed at institutions of higher learning.

The law further requires state law enforcement authorities, in this case the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, to provide the Fort Hays State University Police Department with a list of registered sex offenders who have indicated that they are either enrolled or employed at Fort Hays State University.

Fort Hays State University is required to inform the campus community of the existence of the list and where it is available for review. Hard copies of the file can be viewed by contacting Ed Howell, Director of Police, at (785) 628-5304.
