Public protected from dangerous offenders

PUBLISHED July 29, 2004

New arrangements between the police and other bodies dealing with dangerous offenders are protecting the public better than ever, a Home Office minister has said.

Paul Goggins was speaking as the 42 organisations in England and Wales involved in the multi-agency public protection arrangements (MAPPA) published their annual reports.
Under the MAPPA scheme, the police, probation and prisons services are encouraged to work with other local partners including housing, health and social services to manage the risk to the public posed by dangerous offenders.
