Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $349,651)

The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (AWA) (42 U.S.C. § 16909, et seq.; Pub. L. 113-235, 128 Stat. 2130, 2193) authorizes the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART) to administer sex offender management grants. These grants assist states, the District of Columbia, U.S. principal territories 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 Three Affiliated Tribe (TAT) plans to continue focus on registration, tracking and monitoring of sex offender residing or working within the service area boundaries of Fort Berthold Reservation as a non-tribal members who are required to register with TAT Sex Offender Registry. TAT will also continue collaboration and networking with other tribal SORNA registries by attending meeting and/or trainings sponsored by the Inter-tribal Sex Offender Registry Management Committee comprised of all five tribal entities located in North Dakota. In addition, TAT will continue enhancing the relationship with law enforcement agencies throughout the state and neighboring Tribes in order to comprehensively identify, register and monitor sex offenders. ca/ncf
