Rep. Owens announces award for Utah SORNA grant application

Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) announced a $91,693 award from the Department of Justice to enhance programs designed to implement the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) that protects children and adults from sexual exploitation and violent crime, prevents child abuse and child pornography, and promotes internet safety.

“We have a responsibility to protect young Americans from platforms that promote sexual exploitation and unsafe online environments,” said Rep. Owens. “I’m proud to announce these taxpayer dollars are returning to Utah’s Fourth District to expand our state’s toolbox for enforcing the law, supporting victims, and prosecuting the perpetrators of these heinous crimes.”
