The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000 requires colleges and universities to inform students and employees how to learn the identity of registered sex offenders on campus. This law contains the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act which becomes effective October 23, 2002.
Sex offender information is compiled by the Illinois State Police. The State Police maintain a website that allows you to search their sex offender database online. To learn the identity of registered sex offenders on or near campus, or anywhere in Illinois, visit http://www.isp.state.il.us/sor/. Once there, you can search by city, county, or zip code.
Here's some helpful information for conducting your search
E-mails containing threats and extortion - If this type of e-mail is received please notify your local, state, or federal law enforcement agency. Also notify the IC3 by filing a complaint at http://www.ic3.gov/.
85% OF THEFT ON THIS CAMPUS CAN BE PREVENTED BY THE VICTIM
The conscientious use of keys ( both residence and vehicle) will prevent most theft. Unfortunately, as the semester wears on, we as a community become less vigilant and assume that our friends (residence halls) and neighbors (vehicles) will not steal from us. This is not the case. Use your keys at all times. It only takes a matter of seconds for another to enter your unlocked room and steal your personal property. Diligent use of your keys does not make you paranoid. It makes you smart!
IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION THAT MAY BE USEFUL IN SOLVING THESE CRIMES, YOU ARE URGED TO CONTACT THE EASTERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY POLICE DEPARTMENT AT 581-3213 OR email@example.com.
