The Exchange Portal is an online information sharing community for Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) registration jurisdictions. The portal provides a collaborative environment in which jurisdictions can work together to manage sex offenders throughout the 50 states, 5 U.S. territories, the District of Columbia, and the 197 Indian tribes that have elected to implement SORNA. The portal is available only to registry officials and closed to the general public.
Recently, the Exchange Portal was expanded to include a historical database of state sex offense statutes. This database allows jurisdictions to locate the specific language of the laws that define the criminal offenses for which particular sex offenders are registered. It also provides easy access to the information that SORNA requires jurisdictions to provide on their public registry websites. Without this database, jurisdictions would have to research each offender's criminal offense as it was written at the time of conviction, which could be a time-consuming process. The states that currently have their statutes in the database are Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. The database also includes the United States Code sections for the federal and military sexual offense laws.
