Sex Offender Registration

Under provisions of the Campus Crimes Sex Prevention Act of 2000, an amendment to the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act (Wetterling Act), any person who is required to register under a state sex offender registration program must notify the state when he or she enrolls at an institution of higher education or is employed at an institution of higher education.  Sex offender registration information is to be transmitted from each state to the law enforcement entities where the registered sex offender resides. In Missouri, the sex offender list is maintained at the county level.  The  information can be accessed at the Adair County Sheriff’s Office at (660) 665-4644 or on the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s web page at:
