One of the most significant highlights has been the ability to see in practice the depth of understanding of offending behaviour and a genuine level of involvement of the police tasked in monitoring and managing registered sex offenders in the community. While this may not be seen as a ‘traditional’ role in policing, the police thathad the honour of spending time with had a genuine interest in assisting offenders in becoming active members of the community, and proactively reducing the risk of re-offending. 

Through the use of education, information, practical and applicable tools, and adequate resourcing of staffing levels the police I visited have been able to significantly monitor and manage registered offenders and importantly contribute to the reduction of risk of reoffending. Primarily this is achieved through the use of actuarial risk assessment, dynamic risk assessment and the development of individual risk management plans.
