Sex Offender Registry
The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising campus community members where information concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained.
Persons convicted of certain sex offenses are required by law to register with the State. Information on registered sex offenders is available, for locations where Northwestern University has a established campus (excluding Qatar), at the following websites:
- Illinois State Police
- Illinois Child Murderer and Violent Offender Against Youth Registry Database
- The Florida Department of Law Enforcement
- Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department
The Department of Justice National Sex Offender Public Website is also a source for sex offender information.
For information on registered sex offenders attending or employed at Northwestern University, on the Chicago or Evanston campus, contact the University Police Criminal Investigations and Residence Hall Security / Problem Solving Team at 847-467-0654. Information may also be obtained by contacting the local police department near the campus of interest.
