In accordance with the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000 (“Act”), the College is providing to its campus community a link to the National Sex Offender Public Website and North Carolina Sex Offender and Public Protection Registry (“Registry”). The Act requires the College to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement information provided by North Carolina concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. The Act also requires sex offenders already required to register in North Carolina to provide notice of each institution of higher education in North Carolina at which the person is employed, carries a vocation or is a student. North Carolina law requires sex offenders who have been convicted of certain offenses to register with their county’s sheriff. Information about sex offenders is then entered into the Registry database by the sheriff’s office and transmitted to the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation. The N.C. State Bureau of Investigation collects information submitted by sheriffs in all one hundred (100) counties in the state and makes it available to the public via the Registry.
Members of the MCC community can seek information about registered sex offenders in the region by contacting the local Sheriff’s Department or by visiting the following websites.
