Selected tribes are getting the ability to share data designed to prevent sexual violence on reservations. The U.S. Department of Justice is giving eligible tribes expanded access to the FBI’s National Sex Offender Registry. Those tribes can enter their own information and get comprehensive access to the FBI’s database. The program is an expansion of the 2015 Tribal Access Program for National Crime Information (TAP) now available for about 72 tribes. We’ll learn what this means for tribes working to stop sexual violence.
