Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $160,779)

The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (AWA) (Pub. L. 109-248, 42 U.S.C. § 16901, et seq) 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 Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT) will use SMART FY 14 AWA grant funds to assist with retaining a full-time SORNA Enforcement Officer position; provide supplies and equipment to enhance operations and security; help with scheduling and attendance of various training opportunities; purchase grant specialized equipment and software; and assist in establishing and enhancing information sharing protocols. ca/ncf
