IJIS helps build the National Sex Offender Public Registry

National Sex Offender Public Registry Goes Live

In a press conference July 20th, Assistant Attorney General Regina Scholfield announced that DOJ had met Attorney General Gonzalez's stated objective of having at least 20 states live in the National Sex Offender Public Registry. Schofield noted that the goal could not have been met without the direct paricipation and support of the private sector (as contributed by IJIS Institute member companies).

The OJP press release was issued to inform the public of the availability of the new NSOPR site which is now live. Many IJIS Institute member companies "adopted" states and volunteered to help set up web services to connect the existing state registries to the national registry.
