Submission into Management of Sex Offenders: Discussion Document

Barnardos. (2009). Submission into Management of Sex Offenders: Discussion Document.
Barnardos welcomes to the opportunity to provide input into the Management of Sex Offenders Discussion Document. This submission will follow the thematic format of the discussion document giving commentary and suggestions on how best Barnardos believes convicted sex offenders can be managed in the interests of protecting children. It is heartening that it is already recognised in the Document that greater integrated and co-ordinated approaches across the criminal justice agencies is needed. However, Barnardos would advocate that such enhanced interagency cooperation must also include the HSE and other agencies as this would help to increase the number of sex offenders coming to the attention of the criminal system.
