The Virgin Islands Law Enforcement Planning Commission will utilize funds for the development and/or enhancement of 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 enhance the infrastructure to assist with SORNA implementation through the development of and training for criminal justice agencies; enhance records management and dissemination of data through information sharing; and hire a SORNA compliance officer to manage and develop SORNA Act Programs.
