Effective October 28, 2002, Penal Code 290.1 was expanded and requires sexual offenders to register with Campus Police/Safety. The Redding Police Department is the law enforcement agency responsible for the Shasta College campus. The Tehama County Sheriff’s Department is responsible for the Tehama Campus, the Trinity County Sheriff’s Department is responsible for the Trinity Campus, and the Shasta County Sheriff’s Department is responsible for the Intermountain Campus.​ Convicted sexual offenders are required to register under Section 290 if they are residing on the College campus, enrolled as a student of the College, employed by the College, either full-time or part-time (includes paid employees or volunteers); or working or carrying on a vocation at the College (e.g. contractors) for more than 14 days or for an aggregate period exceeding 30 days in a calendar year. Persons listed above must register with law enforcement agency responsible for their specific jurisdiction within five working days commencing enrollment or employment with the College. Registrants are also required to notify the responsible law enforcement agency within five working days of ceasing to be enrolled or employed, or ceasing to carry on a vocation at the College. AB 1313 amended 290.1 (d) (1), which allows sex offender registration information to be released to members of the campus community by police.

 

Furthermore, the sex offender, who is a student, employee, or visitor of any Shasta-Tehama­Trinity Joint Community College District property, must fully disclose to that law enforcement agency that they are attending, employed, or visiting Shasta College.
