Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $265,976)

The New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety will enhance programs designed to implement the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) portion of the Adam Walsh Act (42 U.S.C. § 16901, et seq.). The Adam Walsh Act is designed to protect children and adults from sexual exploitation and violent crime, prevent child abuse and child pornography, promote Internet safety, and honor the memory of Adam Walsh and other crime victims. SORNA was enacted to protect the public from convicted sex offenders by establishing a comprehensive national system for the registration and notification of those offenders. This project will include enhancements to the palm print system and live scan upgrades. The State's goal is to ensure current biometric information is forwarded in real-time for inclusion in the State Sex Offender Central Registry.
