Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $150,000)

The Congressionally Recommended Awards Program, authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects recommended by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-117, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 2010 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY2010 Department of Justice Appropriations Act.

Through the FY 2010 Congressionally Recommended Awards Program, the Alabama Department of Public Safety will maintain, enhance and develop the Alabama Sex Offender Registry to improve information sharing between law enforcement and other service providers; investigate and prevent child sex crimes; increase offender accountability; manage high-risk offenders in the community through strategic problem analysis and response development; and establish proactive efforts to locate, arrest, and prosecute known child sex offenders.
