Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $61,195)

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. The Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (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. The state of New Hampshire will utilize funds for the development and/or enhancement of programs designed to implement the SORNA portion of the Adam Walsh Act (42 U.S.C. § 16901, et seq.). This project will assist with SORNA implementation by supporting personnel overtime costs for compliance checks, cataloguing of fingerprint DNA and photographs of sex offenders and dissemination of data through information sharing.
