I am sort of new to the whole 290 thing and still on probation. I would like to attend but I am afraid that if I do my PO will violate me and I will end up in jail.

So ask your PO now. If they say no, that gives you plenty of time to appeal to their boss should you want to.

Are there any rules about RSOs coming onto campus, or would doing so violate some law?

RSO’s are required to check in with campus police when they enter a school. In some cases, campus police do not know what to do with this information but it’s important to check in.

Required to check in with Campus Police for setting foot on campus / attending a two hour event – NOT enrolling or working at? Can you provide a link to the applicable law, please?

ONLY people enrolled in class are required to register with a campus police. I am 100% positive that this is the law, I attend 2 different schools. You do NOT need to notify ANYONE if you are there for a meeting or even one single class, only if you ENROLL do you need to register with campus police. READ YOUR CONDITIONS that you initial on the 290 form.

This is correct. I, too, am a student and have dealt with registration issues on campus, but only when I registered.

I would like to point out that anyone on Parole or probation should check with their supervising officer, just in case. We know how those guys can be, let’s not give them a reason to mess with you.

it seem to just say “attending school” (b) Every person described in subdivision (c), for the rest of his or her life while residing in California, or while attending school or working in California, as described in Sections 290.002 and 290.01, shall be required to register with the chief of police of the city in which he or she is residing, or the sheriff of the county if he or she is residing in an unincorporated area or city that has no police department, and, additionally, with the chief of police of a campus of the University of California, the… Read more »

Precisely. Attending, as defined in PC 290.01. It applies to those enrolled, employed or residing at an institution of higher learning, who then must register with Campus Police in addition to their regular registration (if any). If I am going to a UCLA Basketball game (Pauley Pavillion is ON CAMPUS) I certainly am NOT required to check in with Campus Police beforehand!?!?!? Someone please correct me if I am mistaken. But all of this is restrictive and absurd enough – we do not need to make it even worse… PC 290.01: who is enrolled as a student of any university,… Read more »

You are 100% correct Joe!

it said “enrolled as a student ” so that different

So PC 626.81 does say you don’t have to be taking classes before you have to notify the school administrator, just enter the school building. Right? I guess the notification is not considered registration, and so not listed under the 290 requirements. Do we have to know the whole of the California codes, in order to avoid violating a law with serious consequences? How confusing. I really thought my life would be fine as long as I faithfully followed the mantra “do no harm”. How stressful. 10 years already taken off of my lifespan, due to stress. Glad I am… Read more »

PC 626.81 pertains to presence restrictions in traditional K-12 schools, and some others, as defined in PC 626. Universities are defined in a separate section, and only State Universities. And yes, a 290 registrant will be committing a criminal offense by setting foot on school grounds without getting permission in advance. But the meeting advertised here is not at a school, it is at a University. As mentioned above, PC 290.01 deals with the requirement to register with Campus Police for those enrolled, residing or working at a / any University. Enrolled, residing or working at. Not visiting. I see… Read more »

Looks like 626.81 doesn’t say I need to tell the administrator I am 290 registrant, just get permission.

I just want to add, it a waste of the lives of the families of the registrant, who are often more stressed out than the 290s, because society is saying “leave your loved ones, or you too will suffer”. Going back to the middle ages, we are, the public shaming of the criminal and his family, the parade to the scaffold, confessing one’s sins in public, the “broadsheets” listing our deviencies, the scarlet letter, the lawless, angry crowds. Only technology is advancing.

thank you for this meeting place. its very much needed if we group up its going to do something. the registry needs to be taken down or at least changed so that the serious offenders need to be on it only. the adam malsh act is bad and endangers the public more than helps it. putting everyone on the website including registrants who are no more a threat hides the serious offenders within the minor non threats in which threatens the public. needs to be changed. everyone is lumped into one mold and outcasted. the website is a false sense… Read more »

If my friend and i can find a place to boondock the RV anywhere in truely southern California, we WILL go to this event. We will have the money to go, but we need to move anyway. Anyone know of a place i can register, and boondock the RV for a few weeks or longer? We would leave the RV where we are boondocked, then take the car to San Diego for this event. Janice… please advise if you know where a registrant can go. ANYWHERE in southern california.. condition is i must have an “address” to give local sheriff… Read more »

You have run up against one of our most pressing issues. In the City of San Diego, you may not reside within 2000 feet of an amusement center, arcade, child day care facility, library, playground, park or school. How are you supposed to know where all the playgrounds are in San Diego? How many child day care centers are there and where are they located? How are you supposed to know? These laws of banishment are bullshit and need to go. But that doesn’t help you for January 11th. I recommend finding a place in the county and not the… Read more »

I am willing to live anywhere in California. Period. Except for where i live now. Period. I’m actually used to driving very long distances to attend events and meetings. Going 200 miles is nothing for me. Just the other day, i drove 960 miles “just because” i wanted to get out of the house for Christmas. Because i have to move anyway very soon, the money spend to attend this meeting would take away funds to move the RV, dolly and van to the new location where i will be, unless i head that direction. I just have to have… Read more »

@Jason Wilson
There is a squatters camp on the east side of the Salton Sea called “Slab city”( It doesn’t offer many modern conveniences, but there are hot mineral springs nearby. There are many snowbirds there also at this time of year. I believe this is located in Imperial county, but possibly in Riverside Co.

I “might” be able to help. What do you mean by the term “boondock”??

I have a very nice 28 foot Class A, fully self contained Motorhome. I will be towing my car on a car dolly. Once i have a place i can “register” as my next address, i can finally leave my county. The local registering officer is forcing me to give him an address where i will be going to, before i go. This is the main problem. I wish i can say “i don’t know” and go, then register with the agency in the new jurisdiction, but i don’t want to mess with a corrupt sheriff department here. I have… Read more »

Update for everyone! I WILL BE ATTENDING THIS MEETING! I just registered successfully here in San Diego County. I am staying at a hotel for a few days, will try and keep this location as long as i can so that i may not be forced to re-register as being homeless, or having moved. Also, my former county is in for a huge surprise as a just learned that for more than a decade, my County Sheriff has been doing registrations illegally and the police here are now in contact with the US Department of Justice to forward information my… Read more »

We are pleased that you will be able to join us! Looking forward to hearing your story about registration in another county.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
