How the Sex Offender Registry Tool Can Help You

The Sex Offender Registry Tool (SORT) is a sex offender management application provided to states and territories by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART). SORT helps states and territories to implement the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act registry system requirements. Available at no cost, SORT was designed to make the sex offender registry system setup and maintenance process as efficient and effective as possible.
