Sex Offender Registration

Policy #: 3002.8 L


The University of Detroit Mercy (UDM) Department of Public Safety releases to the University community web links maintained by an outside source that will enable the University community to locate information on Michigan registered sex offenders.


This policy applies to students, employees, contractors, consultants, temporary help and other workers at the University of Detroit Mercy, including all personnel affiliated with third parties.


Sexual assault is a physical assault forced upon an individual who does not or can not consent and involves a sexual act or an attempted sexual act with that individual. Sexual assault includes, but is not limited to sexual intercourse. Sexual assaults are acts of violence used to humiliate, dominate and overpower another person.


In accordance to the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000, which amends the Jacob Wetterling Crimes against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, the Jeanne Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, the UDM Department of Public Safety is providing a link to the Michigan Department of State Police (MSP) Sex Offender Registry.  

This Act requires sex offenders registered in a state to provide notice of each institution of higher education in that state at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student. In the State of Michigan, convicted sex offenders must register with the Sex Offender and Crimes against Minors Registry maintained by the MSP. UDM Department of Public Safety provides for the campus community resources to obtain information concerning registered sex offenders.

MSP Public Sex Offender Registry (SOR) is available via Internet pursuant to Offenders Registration Act, MCL 28.721et seq. Registry information provided under this section shall be used for the purpose of the administration of criminal justice, screening of current or prospective employee, volunteers or otherwise for the protection of the public in general and children in particular. 
Unlawful use of the information for the purpose of intimidating or harassing another is prohibited and willful violation shall be punishable through the legal system. These sites are maintained by the Michigan State Police.
