"The Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART) is pleased to provide this Revised Model Tribal Sex Offender Registry Code/Ordinance for use by tribes in complying with the federal Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) (Title I of Public Law 109-248)(42 USC § 16901, et seq.). This document is intended to serve as a guide to full implementation of SORNA, and to provide information that each tribe should consider as it determines how to substantially implement SORNA. Tribes should use this Revised Model Tribal Sex Offender Registry Code/Ordinance only as a starting point. SORNA implementation is unique to each jurisdiction and adoption of a sex offender code should reflect the unique laws, processes, population, land, and traditions of each tribe. This document also includes drafting tips intended to encourage tribal leaders to consider other relevant issues as they meet to discuss any potential code/ordinance development. Further, submission of a code to the SMART Office is only part of the necessary submission for substantial implementation review. Please contact the SMART Office for additional materials to assist with your work toward implementation of SORNA."
