Registration of Sex Offenders

The purpose of this policy is to establish a procedure for the registration of sex offenders at the UCLA Police Department as required by Penal Code §§ 290 and 290.01. It is the policy of the UCLA Police Department to register all persons as required.


All UCLA affiliated persons (as defined) who have been convicted of any crime listed in

Penal Code § 290 (c) are required to register within five (5) days with the Department as

required in:

(a) Penal Code § 290 (b) requires persons described in Penal Code § 290 (c) to register

for life while residing or located in California. A person who resides or is located as

a transient upon the UCLA campus must register with the Department. The person

is required to register within five (5) working days of coming into or changing his

residence or location within any city, county or campus. He/she is also required to

register within five (5) working days of his/her birthday each year for an annual

update. If the registrant is a transient located on the campus he/she must do the

update every thirty (30) days.

(b) Penal Code § 290.005 requires registration of persons convicted in other courts

including other state courts, federal and military courts to register in California if the

offense, had it been committed in California, would have been punishable as one or

more of the offenses described in Penal Code § 290 (c).

1. As long as the outofstate

conviction contains all the elements of a registrable

offense under Penal Code § 290, it is registrable in California. The label of the

offense is not dispositive.

(c) Pursuant to Penal Code § 290.005 (d), any person who would be required to register

while residing in the state of conviction for a sex offense committed in that state but it

does not apply to a person required to register in the state of conviction if the conviction

was for the equivalent of one of the following offenses, and the person is not subject

to Penal Code § 290 (c):

1. Indecent exposure, pursuant to Penal Code § 314.

2. Unlawful sexual intercourse, pursuant to Penal Code § 261.5.

3. Incest, pursuant to Penal Code § 285.

4. Sodomy, pursuant to Penal Code § 286, or oral copulation, pursuant to Penal

Code § 288a, provided that the offender notifies DOJ that the sodomy or oral

copulation conviction was for conduct between consenting adults, as described

in Penal Code § 290.019 and DOJ is able, upon the exercise of reasonable

diligence, to verify that fact.

Similarly, the fact that the offender is not required or has been relieved of the obligation, to

register in his/her home state does not dispose of his/her obligation to register in California.

If the sex offense is an outofstate

conviction, contact the California Attorney General’s

Office Department of Justice to determine if the offense is comparable to a registrable

California offense.

Registration of Sex Offenders

Penal Code § 290.95 prohibits sex offender registrants whose sex crime was against a

victim under age 16 from working with minors as an employee or volunteer if the registrant

will be working with minors directly and in an unaccompanied setting on more than incidental

or occasional basis or has supervisory or disciplinary power over the child.

If the registrant’s crime was not against a victim under age 16 the registrant must notify the

employer or volunteer organization of his/her status as a registrant.

All registrants who are enrolled or employed by an University are required to register with

the campus Police per Penal Code §§ 290.009 and 290.01 (a)(1). This section requires

dual registration with the jurisdiction where the person lives and with the campus for the

following sex offenders that have a registration duty:

• Students enrolled at the campus.

• Full or parttime

employees, with or without compensation.

• Those carrying on a vocation at the campus.

The terms employed or carries on a vocation include employment whether or not it is

financially compensated, volunteered or performed for government or educational benefit.

The registrant must be employed, etc. over 14 days in a calendar year or more than an

aggregate of 30 days. Violation of Penal Code § 290.01 is a misdemeanor.

A student is enrolled for purposes of the registration law, on the day the first

quarter/semester of enrollment begins and must register within five (5) working

days of that date. Thereafter, if the student remains enrolled for the next regular semester

or quarter, he/she does not need to notify the Department of any status change. The

summer session does not count as a regular semester/quarter and if a registrant is present

spring semester/quarter and will return fall semester/quarter he/she does not have to come

in at the end of the spring term to notify the Department he/she is leaving for the summer

nor does he/she have to appear at the beginning of the fall term to reregister.

However, if the registrant does not reenroll

for a regular session during the school

year he/she must notify the Department within five (5) working days of the last day

of the semester/quarter that he/she is enrolled that he/she will be absent the following

semester/quarter. When the registrant reenrolls

he must reregister

with the Department

within five (5) working days of the first day of that new semester/quarter.

The registrant must bring proof of residence if he/she is living on campus such as his/her

contract for the residence halls.

The proof of residency is to consist of either a California Driver’s License, California ID card,

recent rent or utility receipt, printer personalized checks, other recent banking documents

showing the registrant’s name and address or any other reliable proof of residence.

If the registrant has no proof of residence he/she must be allowed to register but told to

return to the Department and furnish proof of residence within 30 days of the date he/she

registered. Failure to furnish such proof pursuant to Penal Code § 290.015 (a)(5) is a

misdemeanor violation of Penal Code § 290.018 (h).


Pursuant to Penal Code §§ 290 (b) and 290.01 (a)(1):

(a) Who resides on UCLA property (registrant must provide proof of residence).
