Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006

The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 was enacted on July 27, 2006. In addition to establishing a national sex offender registry law, the Act made significant changes to sexual abuse, exploitation, and transportation crimes. The Act created new substantive crimes, expanded federal jurisdiction over existing crimes, and increased statutory minimum and/or maximum sentences.

Important Note: Authorities investigating suspected child abuse/neglect in their state and wanting to inquire about an individual's potential child protective services involvement and/or case record in Alaska should contact Alaska's Office of Children's Services (OCS) in the appropriate Alaska community - or call the OCS State Office in Juneau at 907-465-3548 for assistance or fax your request to 907-465-3397.
