Registered Sex Offender Information

It is the policy of The John Marshall Law School that, in accordance with 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, Campus Security provides a link to the Illinois State Police database of all registered sex offenders in Illinois. This act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries a vocation, or is a student. In the State of Illinois, convicted sex offenders must register with the Sex Offender Database maintained by the Illinois State Police.

The Sex Offender Database is available via Internet at www.isp.state.il.us/sor/. Once there, you can search by city, county, or zip code. Our campus is in Cook County, the City of Chicago, and in zip code 60604. To locate offender addresses in relation to the campus you can use Google Maps under www.google.com then select maps. Database information provided under this section shall be used for the purposes of the administration of criminal justice, screening of current or prospective employees, volunteers or otherwise for the protection of the public in general and children in particular.
