"(A) The South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Hall of Fame shall hereafter be administered as an office of the Department of Public Safety."
SECTION 3. References to the "South Carolina Law Enforcement Hall of Fame", "Hall of Fame", or "Hall", as contained in Chapter 25 of Title 23, Section 1-30-90, and Sections 14-1-206, 14-1-207, and 14-1-208 shall be construed to mean the "South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Hall of Fame" administered by the Department of Public Safety, and the Code Commissioner is directed to correct all references therein to correctly reflect this name.

"Section 23-3-460. A person required to register under this article shall be required to register annually for life. For purposes of this article, 'annually' means each year within thirty days after the anniversary date of the offender's first registration. The offender must register at the sheriff's department in the county where he resides. A person determined by a court to be a sexually violent predator pursuant to state law is required to verify registration and be photographed every ninety days by the sheriff's department in the county in which he resides unless the person is committed to the custody of the State, whereby verification shall be held in abeyance until his release.
If a person required to register under this article changes his address within the same county, the person must send written notice of the change of address to the county sheriff within ten days of establishing the new residence.
If a person required to register under this article changes his address into another county in South Carolina, the person must register with the county sheriff in the new county within ten days of establishing the new residence. The person must also provide written notice within ten days of the change of address in the previous county to the county sheriff with whom the person last registered.
If a person required to register under this article moves outside of South Carolina, the person must provide written notice within ten days of the change of address to a new state to the county sheriff with whom the person last registered.
A person required to register under this article who moves to South Carolina from another state and is not under the jurisdiction of the Department of Corrections, the Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services, or the Department of Juvenile Justice at the time of moving to South Carolina must register within ten days of establishing residence in this State.
The sheriff of the county in which the person resides must forward all changes to any information provided by a person required to register under this article to SLED within five business days.
The South Carolina Department of Public Safety, Division of Motor Vehicles, shall inform, in writing, a new resident who applies for a driver's license, chauffeur's license, vehicle tag, or state identification card of the obligation of sex offenders to register. The department also shall inform, in writing, a person renewing a driver's license, chauffeur's license, vehicle tag, or state identification card of the requirement for sex offenders to register."
SECTION 5. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Ratified the 28th day of June, 2001.
