Training Events for Tribes and Territories
Since the release of the Tribe and Territory Sex Offender Registry System (TTSORS), the SMART Office has been working diligently to train the 197 implementing Indian tribes and 3 U.S. territories on the system. The SMART Office has sponsored four 1-day TTSORS training events throughout the country, including Tulsa, Oklahoma; Seattle, Washington; Santa Ana, New Mexico; and Las Vegas, Nevada. These training events have been a great success, reaching approximately 100 different jurisdictions.
Representatives from tribes and territories obtained training on all the features and functions of TTSORS and learned about all the additional Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) requirements. During the events, attendees were able to interact with the developers of TTSORS and the SMART Office staff responsible for assisting the jurisdictions with substantially implementing SORNA.
