In collaboration with the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART), NIJ seeks creative and innovative proposals for research that examines how information sharing, a key function of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), may have evolved since its implementation. Specifically, NIJ is interested in assessing how information sharing has changed how criminal justice agents (e.g., law enforcement, public safety administrators, correctional administrators, and prosecutors), track, monitor, and prosecute offenders; what types of information are collected and shared; how the public accesses and uses information about sex offenders in their community; and the cost of inter- and intra-jurisdictional information sharing.
