According to the provisions of the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000, institutions of higher education are required to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a state concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained.
Furthermore, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) requires that the Department of Public Safety, in a timely manner, report to the college community incidents that represent a possible threat to the college community.
Although not a QCC student or staff member, NYPD has advised the QCC Department of Public Safety that a registered Level 3 sex offender is residing within several blocks of our campus.
The subject is identified as Maurice Parker, a black male, 5’7” tall, 270 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes, 43 years of age, residing in Bayside, NY.
The offender has been assigned a risk level of 3, which means the risk to the general community is high. For further details, including photo identification on said subject, go to the Sex Offender Registry

The QCC Department of Public Safety is making every effort, in conjunction with the NYPD, to help ensure the safety of our students, faculty, and staff both on and off campus. Our officers are already aware of the above details and have been instructed to increase their vigilance regarding the above named individual, as well as to any other suspicious person(s) or activities.
- The Department performs on-going patrols 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the campus and its perimeters on foot, bicycle and/or by vehicle.

Exterior emergency phones are also located in parking lot # 6 and on the outside of the Temp 2 building adjacent the bus stop.
- To further enhance safety, the college is currently upgrading its Closed Circuit TV (Security Camera) system which will assist the Department of Public Safety in monitoring activities on the exterior perimeters of campus.
- The Department is also encouraging all members of the college community to wear their QCC ID cards, or at the very least have them available to produce, requested by members of the Public Safety staff or other college officials. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated and will assist in determining a person’s authorization to be on campus.
For your protection please be guided by the following safety tips:
