Keeping Our Children Safe


Location: Unknown

Two bills also passed the House of Representatives this week that will go a long way in keeping our children safe. The first piece of legislation, H.R. 6063, Child Protection Act, would increase the penalties for possession of child pornography and child exploitation offenses. H.R. 3796, Adam Walsh Reauthorization Act, reauthorizes the Adam Walsh Act for another 5 years. These programs will make it more difficult for sex offenders to take advantage of holes in our law enforcement system to avoid detection. These programs are crucial in efforts to complete and enforce the national network of sex offender registries. We must give our U.S. Marshals and law enforcement officials the tools they need to assist local partners in apprehending sex offenders.
