Welcome to the Turtle Mountain Sex Offender Registry Website this site is provided to you by the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians. Title 42 (Turtle Mountain Sex Offender Registration Code) which requires all sex offenders who visit, live or go to school, and who has a qualifying conviction to maintain all registration requirements with the Turtle Mountain Sex Offender Registry department. Registrants are also required to register their employment and college addresses also.
Public Law 280 states had found that state sex offender registry and notification laws were essentially civil regulatory in nature. Due to the nature of federal Indian law, this meant that states had no jurisdiction to impose their sex offender laws on tribal lands, thereby creating a gap by requiring tribes to either opt in to the national registry system. Consequently, Title 1 of the Adam Walsh Act sought to close that gap by requiring tribes to either opt in to the national registry system or have their jurisdiction over such matters transferred to states. Title 1 is what is known as the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA). On July 10, 2007 Chairman David “Doc” Brien signed Resolution # TMBC0311-07-07 to opt-into the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 entitled “Sex Offender Registration and Notification Program”. The Turtle Mountain Sex Offender Registration and Notification program is created to monitor and track people convicted of sex crimes and to provide access to this information for all the member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians. The program is to enhance public safety by making the information contained in the Turtle Mountain Sex Offender Registry easily accessible to the public. It will also serve to enhance public awareness about sexual violence in our communities and provide valuable information about the ways in which individuals and communities can protect themselves and those they love from acts of sexual violence. The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians enacted the Turtle Mountain Sex Offender Registration Code (Title 42) on November 10, 2012. The Turtle Mountain Sex Offender Registry department shall maintain and operate all guidelines on how to implement the Code.
