Ocean County Prosecutor's Office awards CSI with the contract for a new Megan's Law Case Management System December 15th, 2002
Keasbey, NJ, December 15, 2002 - Ocean County has awarded CSI Technology Group with the contract to develop a Megan's Law case management system. With the new development, Ocean County arms the public with certain information on the whereabouts of released offenders so that local communities are aware of released offenders' residences. The case management system will provide the Prosecutor's Office with an efficient way to manage released sex offenders, and will make the mapping and notification process easier and more accurate.
Megan's Law is named after seven-year-old Megan Kanka, a New Jersey girl who was killed by a known child molester who had moved across the street from the family without their knowledge. In the wake of the tragedy, the Kanka's sought to have local communities warned about sex offenders in the area.
On October 31, 1994, the New Jersey State Legislature enacted the Registration and Community Notification Laws (RCNL), also known as Megan's Law. The RCNL require certain convicted sexual offenders to register with law enforcement authorities and provide for community notification depending upon the degree of risk that these offenders will commit sexual crimes in the future.
The law also authorizes local law enforcement to notify the public about high-risk and serious sex offenders who reside in, are employed in, or frequent the community. Each town will receive the offenders name and a recent photograph, along with a physical description, offense of which he or she was convicted, address, place of employment and/or schooling and vehicle license plate.
CSI is pleased to contribute to the community notification process by providing a case management system, which helps law enforcement officials track the location of released offenders.
