The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act mandates the manner in which statistics are to be collected and the format in which statistics are to be published. Recent amendments to the Clery Act dramatically changed the collection and publication process. Consequently, the new format is utilized below.

Information Concerning Registered Sex Offenders in Maryland
The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires that institutions of higher learning provide "a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained, such as the law enforcement office of the institution, a local law enforcement agency with jurisdiction for the campus, or a computer network address." [20 U.S.C. § 1092(f) (1) (I)] The State of Maryland has created a Web site that lists all registered offenders in the state. The site address is www.dpscs.state.md.us/onlineservs/sor/. Searches on the Web site may be conducted by name, address, city, or ZIP code.
