Campus Safety & Security

Near Campus Jurisdictions

Many students and employees live in the neighborhoods that surround the campus. These neighborhoods are not the jurisdiction of the UMPD and most are outside of the University’s Clery Act responsibility. However, when a serious crime occurs in an area just outside of our Clery geography, the University works closely with our law enforcement partners to determine if a public safety notification should be issued to the University community.
Community members are encouraged to sign up for community and neighborhood alerts for off-campus areas. This can be done through the police department where you live.

Predatory Sexual Offenders

Certain felony level sex and other predatory offenders are required by law to keep law enforcement agencies apprised of their current residence, employment, and school address, as well as any changes to that information.  Some of these offenders have demonstrated by their past behavior that they are part of a group who pose the greatest risk to the public when released. This does not mean that they will commit a new crime, just that they are part of a group of persons who might.

State and federal law requires UMPD to advise the University community of the release or residence of such predatory offenders in our community. Any such predatory/sexual offenders that are attending classes or are employed at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities can be found here. These individuals are not wanted by law enforcement at this time and have served the sentence imposed upon them by the court. The use of this information to threaten, harass, or intimidate such individuals may be a crime and will not be tolerated.

The website does not contain information regarding predatory sex offenders who live or work near, but not on, University of Minnesota property. A list of such offenders may be found on the Minnesota Department of Corrections website.
