Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements


Annual Report 2002-3
Foreword
By Paul Goggins, Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Community and
Custodial provision in the Home Office

As the recently appointed Minister with responsibility for the MAPPA, I am


pleased to introduce this, the second, annual MAPPA report. It is clear that in
the last year (2002/3) the multi-agency public protection arrangements (the
MAPPA) continued to play an important role in what remains one of this
government’s highest priorities – the protection of the public from dangerous
offenders.

As someone with many years experience of working in the field of child


protection, I am particularly impressed by the important contribution the
MAPPA are making to strengthen collaboration between agencies at a local
level where the focus is on the dangerous offender. These improvements
must, however, impact on the protection of children. As the tragic death of
Victoria Climbie showed, an effective multi-agency partnership is crucial and
the MAPPA are an important element.

To ensure greater consistency in the MAPPA across the 42 Areas of England


and Wales, and to prepare for the implementation of measures contained in
the Criminal Justice Bill, we published the MAPPA Guidance in April. Building
on good practice, that Guidance clarified the structure of the operational
arrangements as well as the importance of formal review and monitoring – of
which this annual report is a vital part. The Criminal Justice Bill will strengthen
the MAPPA in two ways. First, it will make the involvement of other agencies
part of the statutory framework. Second, it will introduce the involvement of
lay people – those unconnected with day-to-day operation of the MAPPA – in
reviewing and monitoring the MAPPA. Annual reports and this new lay
involvement show the Government’s commitment to explaining how the often
sensitive and complex work of public protection is undertaken.

The Government is also strengthening the protection of the public with other
measures in the Criminal Justice Bill. They include new sentences for
dangerous offenders to prevent their release if they continue to be dangerous.
Additionally, the Sexual Offences Bill will tighten up sex offender registration,
introduce a new offence of ‘grooming’, and enable sex offender orders to be
imposed on violent offenders who pose a risk of causing serious sexual harm
– thereby extending sex offender registration to them.

I commend this report to you and congratulate all the agencies and individuals
who have contributed to the achievement of the MAPPA locally in your local
area.

The National Picture

This section of the report draws attention to wider context of the operation and
development of the Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (the
MAPPA).

The most important work undertaken within the MAPPA is done locally, led by
the police and probation – who act jointly as the ‘Responsible Authority’ in
your Area – and in each of the 42 Areas of England and Wales. The
experience and good practice upon which this work is based began in the
1990s – most significantly as a result of the closer working relationship
required by the Sex Offender Act (1997). The Criminal Justice and Courts
Services Act (2000) formalised that relationship and built on the existing
experience by requiring the police and probation services to establish
arrangements (the MAPPA) for assessing and managing the risks posed by
sexual and violent offenders. The Act also required the Responsible Authority
to publish an annual report on the operation of those arrangements. This
report, covering April 2002 to March 2003, is the second annual report.

The importance of partnership

Key to the development of the MAPPA in the past year has been the closer
involvement of other agencies, such as housing, health and social services,
working alongside police and probation. The truly multi-agency nature of the
MAPPA and the collaboration which underpins it is to be strengthened further
by the Criminal Justice Bill. The Bill will place a ‘duty to co-operate’ on a wide
range of organisations including local health authorities and trusts; housing
authorities and registered social landlords; social services departments;
Jobcentres; Youth Offending Teams; and local education authorities. In
addition, the Prison Service will join the police and probation services and
become part of the MAPPA ‘Responsible Authority’.

Supporting and co-ordinating the development of the MAPPA throughout the


42 Areas of England and Wales, is the National Probation Directorate’s Public
Protection Unit (PPU). This Unit acts as a central point for advice and,
increasingly, involvement in the management of difficult cases. These include,
for example, UK citizens who have committed serious offences abroad and
return to this country without anywhere to live. The Unit is also able to provide
financial support when the risk management plans make exceptional
demands upon local resources.

Involving the public

MAPPA developments in the next 18 months will also include the appointment
by the Home Secretary of two ‘lay advisers’ to each Area. The eight Areas of
England and Wales which have been piloting these arrangements since
January (Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Durham, South Wales, Dorset,
Hampshire, Surrey and West Midlands) report that they add real value. Lay
advisers will contribute to the review and monitoring of the MAPPA which is
undertaken by each Area’s Strategic Management Board – the work of which
you can read more in this report.

The purpose of appointing ‘lay advisers’ is to ensure that communities


understand more of what is done to protect them and that those involved
professionally with the MAPPA are aware of the views of the community. The
lay advisers will not ‘represent’ the community in the way, for example, that
local councillors do, nor will they be involved in operational decision-making.
And, given the sensitivity of much of what the MAPPA does, especially with
the few offenders who pose a very high risk of serious harm to the public, it is
not practicable for the general public to be involved. Lay advisers will,
however, ensure an appropriate and a practical level of community
involvement.

MAPPA Offenders

This year the annual report provides a more detailed breakdown of the
number of sexual and violent offenders who are covered by the MAPPA in
your Area. As last year, the figures include the number of registered sex
offenders. Because sex offender registration is for a minimum of 5 years (and
generally for much longer) the figures are cumulative. This is why they have
increased – by 16 per cent in England and Wales. Only a very small
proportion (about six per cent throughout England and Wales) are considered
to pose such a high risk or management difficulty that they are referred to the
highest level of the MAPPA – the Multi-Agency Public Protection Panels (the
MAPPP).

Figures alone do not, of course, tell the whole story. The anonymised case
studies illustrate the practical work of the MAPPA, and demonstrate the
preventive action which can be taken. Prior to the MAPPA, action of this kind
was mainly taken by one agency alone, with the effect that on occasion
offenders’ behaviour which might have triggered preventative action went
unnoticed. The multi-agency approach of the MAPPA helps ensure that if an
offender does breach the condition of the licence under which they were
released from prison or a court order prohibiting certain activities, then action
to enforce the condition or order and protect the public can be taken more
swiftly.

If you are interested in reading the reports of other Areas, they will be
published on the National Probation Service’s website
www.probation.homeoffice.gov.uk (under the public protection section) with all
of them being available once the last Area has published its annual report in
September.
1.Area Summary

The Criminal Justice and Court Services Act 2000, sections 67 and 68
requires police and probation services to make arrangements for the
identification and oversight of sexual and other dangerous offenders within
their areas and to work in collaboration with other relevant organisations to
achieve this.

Proper management of dangerous offenders begins with the ability to identify


who they are, how likely they are to reoffend and in what circumstances, what
harm they are likely to cause and who is most at risk. Two validated methods
of assessment are used by the police, probation and prison services.

A tool called OASys introduced into the Probation Service in the past year
and newly introduced into the Prison Service enables a judgement to be
made about the level of risk of harm through a process of structured
questioning. The MAPPA is concerned with those judged to be at high or
very high risk of causing serious harm at any time whether imminent or longer
term.

The other method of assessment, Risk Matrix 2000, is used by both police
and probation. It is simpler and actuarially based. It points to the likelihood of
reconviction within a two year period.

These tools, together with Asset for offenders under 18 determine the
threshold for admission to the MAPP system. They will be supplemented by
other forms of assessment such as that provided by psychologists. During
the coming year, the MAPP will consider the introduction of a tool for
measuring psychopathy.

Police and probation, as the Responsible Authorities, have a duty exercised


through the MAPPA to ensure that once assessed, there are robust plans for
the management of an offender and that these plans are followed through.

These plans have as their primary focus the desire to minimise the likelihood
of further offending and thereby to protect victims and potential victims.

This can be achieved in a variety of ways often in combination. They include


continuous intelligence gathering, direct surveillance, placing restrictions on
behaviour, residence, employment and contacts, directions to attend
treatment and provision for intervention in the form of programmes delivered
by the probation service and shown to reduce reoffending. Some plans will
require the involvement of other agencies such as mental health and housing.

Many of the offenders with whom the MAPP is concerned will have spent a
period in custody. Planning for release is critical and is based on the bringing
together of information about the person’s offence details and circumstances,
their contacts, attitudes and behaviour whilst in custody, and information
about potential victims. Although the majority will serve all or part of their
sentence in prisons in this area, others will be located around the country. It
is hoped that a prison officer will be appointed to the public protection team.
