In 1994, the Congress enacted the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act (the Wetterling Act)1 requiring certain sex offender registrations and notifications to State and local law enforcement officials in the State where the sex offender resides, is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student. (See Appendix A for background information.) The Departments of Commerce, Justice and State, the Judiciary, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 1998 (CJSA)2 included military sex offenders under the Wetterling Act coverage and required notifications beginning 1 year after enactment. The primary objective for this evaluation was to determine whether the Department of Defense (DoD) satisfies its notification requirements for military sex offenders, including whether DoD and/or individual Service.
