HO:  Proposals to strengthen the police & probation services' ability to protect the public & manage registered sex offenders in local communities have been published by the Government. 

They are intended to ensure that sex offenders currently required to register with the police for life will have to wait 15 years following their release from prison before they can apply to be considered for removal from the register (this period will be 8 years for juveniles).  Consultation closes on 8 Aug 2011 and are expected to come in to force by early 2012.
