Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $257,227)

The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority will develop 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 entering into a subcontract with the Illinois State Police (ISP) to support the scanning of existing paper documents and the acquisition and ongoing operation of an electronic document scanning and management system to enable ISP to comply with SORNA requirements. The State goals are to meet SORNA requirements for documentation retention and sharing by transitioning the SORNA from a paper-based to an electronic record keeping system and enhance offender compliance with SORNA requirements.
