UK: Police relax monitoring of sex offenders to focus on high-risk criminals

Police forces have dropped measures designed to stop convicted sex criminals reoffending, the National Police Chiefs’ Council has said, in a bid to focus more on those who present a greater risk.

The new approach will see some low-risk offenders no longer being subject to annual home visits or having the risks they pose reassessed as thoroughly as before. Full Article

yep more lies..” registry must be working only .16% reoffended” bunch of bs…I bet it was approx. the same before they had a registry just like here….

“Skeer said the sex offender register worked well. Just 0.13% – 69 people – of the 52,000 people on it committed a serious offence last year, and 1,500 people committed a breach of their notification requirements.”

Someone should teach Mr. Skeer that correlation does not necessarily establish causation. That a registry is in place AND just 0.13% recividated does not mean it’s BECAUSE of there being a registry. Just like if a black cat crosses my path AND I have a heart attack, in no way can one logically or confidently conclude I had the heart attack BECAUSE the cat crossed my path.

That all said, it’s good to see the U.K. is getting some sense about things. Maybe they can nudge The American Colonies a bit and help us out! I wonder about, though doubt, any changes to immigration for us based on this.

I wonder if this development might affect the UK’s policy of not admitting any US sex offenders, regardless of when they were convicted and their risk level. I was turned away at Heathrow airport three years ago, and would love to try again. My offense was CP possession 11 years ago with a sentence of probation. Anyone know of a lawyer in the UK that would know the procedure?
