Sex Offender Registration & Community Notification

Under provisions of the Jacob Wetterline Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act (Wetterling Act), any person who is required to register under a state sex offender registration program must notify the state when  he or she enrolls at an institution of higher education or is employed at such an institution, and must  notify the state of any change in enrollment or employment at an institution of high education.  Sex offender registration information is to be transmitted from each state to the law enforcement entities where the registered sex offenders reside.  In Missouri, the sex offender list is maintained at the county level.
