It is the policy of the CRST SORNA office to use all reasonable means to assist in the investigation of noncompliant sex offenders, to educate the public about personal safety precautions, and to train designated law enforcement personnel on sex offender registration, notification, verification, and community education procedures.
The CRST SORNA Office recognizes that sex offenders can pose a significant risk to the community and that community fear may be fueled by confusing sex offender laws and a lack of understanding of law enforcement efforts to hold sex offenders accountable. The CRST SORNA Office is guided by the Tribal, Federal, and State law regarding the registration, public notification, and verification of convicted sex offenders to enforce compliance and to prevent future victimization. The CRST SORNA Office also recognizes that, in collaboration with other appropriate departments, it is responsible for notifying community members about the presence of certain registered sex offenders, maintaining registration files, verifying c6mpliance with registration laws, investigating violations of such law and new offenses, and locating non-compliant or absconded offenders.
