(DAVIS, Calif.) -- Sex offenders who wish to enroll or work at the University of California-Davis would be required, under a new law, to register with the UCD Police Department. The proposed law, Assembly Bill 4, is the California version of a national law passed in October. The state law was introduced by Assemblywoman Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) on March 2.
"A person with any number of heinous sexual convictions can be enrolled in child development classes and (be) gaining unsupervised access to hundreds of infants and toddlers, all without campus police having the faintest clue," Bates said.
