Sex Offender Registry
Sex Offender Registry information as required under the "Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration" Act.
Under the "Campus Sex Crimes Registration Act," which took effect on October 28, 2002, the Framingham State University Police Department is a repository for information concerning registered sex offenders who study, work, and/or carry on a vocation at Framingham State University.
Under the current procedures of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board the only methods of obtaining sex offender information as it applies to Framingham State University requires that an individual seeking such information either apply for it in person at the "Town of Framingham Police Department" or the individual applies directly to the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board.
The Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board which was established pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 6, Sections 178C - 178F, classifies each registered offender into one of three categories.
- Level 1: considered a low risk offender
- Level 2: considered a moderate risk offender
- Level 3: considered a high risk offender
Sex offender information is available to the public by Massachusetts Law only if the person has a duty to register, and has been classified by the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board as a level 2 or level 3 offender.
Any member of the public who is 18 years of age or older may request sex offender information. Sex offender information will be provided to any person who is seeking the information for his or her own information or for the protection of a child who is under 18 or for the protection of another person for whom the requesting person has the responsibility, care, or custody.
