Abstract

This briefing reviews some of the recent developments relating to the management of registered sex offenders in Scotland. It focuses on processes of information sharing between responsible authorities and third parties, deemed necessary as part of an overall risk management strategy. It then explores the Community Notification Pilot which has the potential to extend and enhance these processes and in so doing may provide greater public reassurance, build public confidence, increase public involvement in the protection of children, and generate increased intelligence relating to registered sex offenders.
