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 Iowa Governors Office will utilize SORNA Reallocation funds to purchase equipment for Special Agents and and DCI staff assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children's Unit, to coordinate criminal cases and interview and issue warrants on active Iowa sex offenders.
