Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $58,314)

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. The New Hampshire Department of Justice will subgrant the award to the New Hampshire State Police to provide overtime and purchase scanning equipment to allow for digitization of offender paperwork in order to become SORNA compliant.
