Tribe and Territory Sex Offender Registry System (TTSORS)
The Tribe and Territory Sex Offender Registry System (TTSORS) is a full-functioning sex offender management system and public Web site that complies with requirements of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA). TTSORS was created to assist the 191 Indian tribes and 3 of the principal U.S. territories that elected to substantially implement SORNA by effectively removing the technical difficulties of SORNA implementation. TTSORS includes a customizable public Web site and a private administrative Web site for managing sex offender information. Most of Indian country and the U.S. territories have the minimal resources needed to use TTSORS—a single computer with Internet access.
Title I of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act (AWA), named the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), includes sex offender registry system capabilities that all registration jurisdictions must implement to substantially implement SORNA. TTSORS includes all of the SORNA-required capabilities so jurisdictions using TTSORS can be confident that they have met all of the technical requirements of SORNA.
TTSORS provides a tremendous benefit for the Indian tribes and U.S. territories that use it—there is no extra information technology infrastructure burden on the tribe or territory, there is no information technology staff required to manage the application, and application and server updates are applied automatically.
The Institute for Intergovernmental Research serves as the technical assistance provider for TTSORS through the support of grant awards received from the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking.
