Ministerial Foreword by Baroness Scotland
The work being undertaken to improve the safety of communities through the Multi- Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) is vitally important and a priority forgovernment. The annual reports for 2004/5 provide evidence of that active engagement. Violence and sexual abuse are unacceptable wherever they occur and it is evident thatthrough MAPPA such offenders are identified and better managed than ever before. As thenumber of offenders within MAPPA continues to grow as expected there is clear evidencethat the Responsible Authority, that is the local police, probation and the Prison Service,is addressing these additional demands by strengthening local partnerships, using newstatutory powers to restrict the behaviour of offenders, returning offenders to custodywhere they breach their licence or order, and using the findings of research and inspectionto strengthen national guidance and local practice. Although it is never possible completely to eliminate the risk posed by dangerous offenders,MAPPA is helping to ensure that fewer people are re-victimised.The active implementation of the Criminal Justice Act (2003) during the last year hasclearly enhanced the ability of a number of agencies including health, social services andhousing to work collaboratively with the Responsible Authority in assessing and managingthose sexual and violent offenders in our communities who pose the highest risk of serious harm. For the continued success of MAPPA this collaboration together with thescrutiny of policy and practice must become the hallmark of these arrangements. SimilarlyMAPPA must integrate with other public protection mechanisms dealing with child abuse,domestic abuse and racial abuse.For me one of the most exciting developments in this arena in the last 12 months hasbeen the appointment of lay advisers to assist the Responsible Authority in the oversightof the arrangements. As ordinary members of the public these lay advisers represent adiverse, able and committed group of people who are now helping the statutory agenciesto oversee the work being undertaken through MAPPA and communicate with the publicmore effectively. Without a growing sense of public knowledge and confidence about thiswork much of the benefits of the public protection arrangements will be lost.I hope this annual report will be useful, informative and re-assuring to local communities.The agencies and individuals who have contributed to the achievement of MAPPA locallyare to be commended.Baroness ScotlandMinister of State for Criminal Justice and Offender Management
