Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $384,000)

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.

The Alaska Department of Public Safety is working to digitize and index all sex offender registration documentation to further its compliance with SORNA. The State plans to (1) modify its document image SQL database index; (2) create a sex offender photo database and web service; (3) create a sex offender WEB browser application; (4) create a document scanner application for multiple document types; and (5) modify its Image Archive web service interface. ca/ncf
