Campus Sex Crime Prevention Act
The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where they may obtain information provided by the state concerning registered sexual predators and offenders. It also requires sexual predators and offenders to provide notice, as required under State law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student at that institution. Barry University Public Safety will notify the Barry community when a registered sexual predator or offender has registered as being on campus per State law.
Any member of the Barry University community who wishes to obtain further information regarding sexual offender/predators in our area may refer to the FDLE website at:offender.fdle.state.fl.us or call 1-888-FL-PREDATOR / 1-888-357-7332). The FDLE searchable database may be used to find all registered sex offenders in any city, county, or zip code in the state. In accordance with Florida State Statute 775.21 ("The Florida Sexual Predators Act”), convicted sex offenders in Florida must register with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement ("the FDLE") within 48 hours of establishing permanent or temporary residence. It is then the responsibility of the agency to make required notification to all community members of the presence of predators (only) in any manner deemed appropriate by the agency.
Upon notification of the presence of an offender/predator, it is the responsibility of the law enforcement agency with jurisdiction over the offender/predator's address to inform the University that the offender/predator has stated that he/she is currently enrolled at the university.
Barry University has no offender/predator employed at Barry University.
February 2013: The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has notified the University that the following individual is a registered sexual offender and is enrolled or expected to enroll as a student at Barry University.
