The National Sex Offender Registry (NSOR) was implemented upon the proclamation of the Sex Offender Information Registration Act (SOIRA) in December 2004. Although NSOR is a provincially led initiative, the enforcement of SOIRA is national in application. These initiatives represent a vital step for Canadian police organizations in fighting crimes of a sexual nature.
This course was developed as the training tool for NSOR and the SOIRA. Training modules in this course explain the history and key elements surrounding NSOR and SOIRA, information collection procedures, disclosure of information, dealing with non-compliance, exemption, and termination orders and serving a notice to comply. This course will help police services meet the need to have personnel trained in issues surrounding SOIRA and NSOR.
