Sex Offender Enactments

Sex offender policies continue to be on state legislative agendas. Some state actions are a response to the federal Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) provisions of the federal Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006. However, numerous other enactments represent state innovation on how to best manage sex offender populations and address sex offenses. This database identifies key state legislation enacted going back to 2008.

Body-Worn Camera Laws Database

Body-worn cameras are recording devices police officers wear as part of their uniforms to document what they see as they perform their duties. Body cameras continue to be a significant focus for state law makers as they consider and enact legislation to address police-community relations, as tracked in our database.
