The state will use this award to 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 SORNA Reallocation award will be used to purchase Live Scan systems with palm print capture capability and to purchase electronic signature pads for use with an electronic database and mapping system that can be used to track sex offenders state wide, and bring the state closer to the implementation of SORNA.
