National Sex Offender Public Web Site
The Justice Department’s Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender Public Web site (NSOPW) provides the public free and immediate access to all state, local, and tribal sex offender registries through a single Web site. The Office of Justice Programs’ Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART) supports the national implementation of a comprehensive sex offender registration and notification system.
SMART provides jurisdictions with guidance and technical assistance to help them implement the Adam Walsh Act. This includes administering grant funds to support sex offender programming throughout the United States. In Fiscal Year 2010, SMART provided more than $13 million to state, local, and tribal governments.
During the 2011 National Workshop on the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) on January 11, 2011, in Washington, D.C., the SMART office will provide assistance to help jurisdictions meet the upcoming July 2011 SORNA implementation deadline. Enrollment is free, but attendance is by invitation only. A limited number of scholarships are available to cover airfare and lodging. For more information, contact GetSMART@usdoj.gov.
