Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $20,534)
The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (AWA) (Pub. L. 109-248, 42 U.S.C. § 16901, et seq) authorizes the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART) to administer sex offender management grants. These grants assist state, local and tribal jurisdictions in developing and/or enhancing sex offender registration and notification programs that support substantial implementation of Title I of the AWA, known as the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA). SORNA was enacted to protect the public from convicted sex offenders and offenders against children by establishing a comprehensive national system for the registration of those offenders.
This project supports activities associated with establishing the Santa Clara Pueblo Sex Offender Registry and Website. Grant funds will support overtime costs for a certified police officer to collect, maintain, and update sex offender registration information for the Santa Clara Pueblo Sex Offender Registry. This data will be submitted to the required national and state registries. The Pueblo will also purchase the AFIX Tracker fingerprint and palm print identification system necessary to implement the digital records requirement of SORNA.
