Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act
Under the federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, which went into effect on October 28, 2002, any person who is required to register with the Commonwealth under Pennsylvania's Megan's Law as a sex offender must notify the state if they are employed or a student at a college or university. The law also requires institutions of higher learning to advise the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by the Commonwealth may be obtained.
The DeSales University Police Department currently works in cooperation with the Upper Saucon Township Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police Megan's Law Unit to receive information on current registered sex offenders residing within the University community. Information regarding sex offenders may be obtained by contacting Upper Saucon Township Police at 610.282.3064 or the Pennsylvania State Police website.
Criminal history background checks are presently conducted on all prospective full-time and part-time employees prior to an offer of employment. The University will not offer employment to applicants if they have a criminal history that is relevant to the requirements of the position or presents a safety concern. Except for some graduate school and financial aid applications, the University does not ask prospective students about previous criminal records.
Use or possession of firearms, ammunition, explosives, knives or weapons of any kind are not permitted anywhere on the campus at DeSales University.
