Offenders database 'to cut crime'

PUBLISHED August 19, 2005

A computer system allowing police to share details of dangerous offenders is to be unveiled by the Home Office.

The £10m Violent and Sex Offenders Register (Visor) is intended to help reduce re-offending and contains information on 47,000 people.
It controversially includes details on people who have not been convicted, but are still considered a public danger.
