Many of the offenses that sex offenders are prosecuted for involve victims that are children. If convicted, offenders are required by the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act to register as a sex offender. This further helps protect children from sexual exploitation, violent crime, child abuse and child pornography. This effort also helps promote internet safety for children and honors the memory of Adam Walsh and other child crime victims. The United States Marshals Service is the primary agency responsible for investigating violations of the Adam Walsh Act.
