Sex Offender Registration

In accordance with state law (Section 29-11A-4.I NMSA 1978, et seq.):

When a sex offender who is registered or required to register is employed, begins a vocation or is enrolled as a student at an institution of higher education in New Mexico, the sex offender shall disclose the sex offender’s status as a sex offender in writing to the county sheriff for the county in which the institution of higher education is located, the law enforcement entity responsible for the institution of higher education and the registrar for the institution of higher education no later than five business days after beginning employment, beginning a vocation or enrolling at the institution of higher education.  The sex offender shall also send written notice of any change regarding employment, vocation or enrollment status at an institution of higher education to the county sheriff, the law enforcement entity and the registrar no later than five business days after the change in employment, vocation or enrollment status.”

 

In order to comply with the notification of the “law enforcement entity responsible for the institution of higher education” requirement, sex offenders must complete the NMSU Police Department Sex Offender Registration form and either deliver it in person or e-mail it to Police@nmsu.edu within the deadline identified in statute.
