Sex Offender Registry
The federal Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 provides for the registration and tracking of all sex offenders. Institutions of higher education are required to issue a statement advising the campus community where to obtain law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders. The law also requires sex offenders already required to register in a state to provide notice, as required under state law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student.
In Idaho, convicted sex offenders must register with their local sheriff's office for inclusion in a central registry maintained by the Idaho State Police.

In Alaska, convicted sex offenders must register with the State of Alaska Department of Public Safety. Information about registered sex offenders is available to the public on the State of Alaska Department of Public Safety website by accessing the following link.
