Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements

Annual Report 2002-3
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

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.

Paul Goggins
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; Job centres; 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

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 (under the public protection
section) with all of them being available once the last Area has published its annual report in
1. Area Summary

There is a history of close working and collaboration between Police and Probation in Devon
and Cornwall. The former Probation Services of Devon and Cornwall were amalgamated in April
2001, alongside the introduction of the National Probation Service. This is a large geographical
area, which consists of four Probation divisions, broadly consistent with the police Basic
Command Units.

Formal arrangements in Devon and Cornwall began in response to the Sex Offenders Act 1997,
when Police and Probation began to make joint arrangements for the assessment of registered
sex offenders. Following the implementation of the Criminal Justice and Courts Services Act,
2000, multi-agency collaboration has been strengthened, with significant developments
during the past year, which include:

• Full agreement to establish during 2003 four Police/Probation ‘Public Protection’ Teams.

• The joint appointment of a ‘MAPPP Registrar’, at middle manager level, to chair all meetings
on the ‘critical few’ offenders, oversee monitoring and quality control and management,
ensure consistency of practice and advise on policy and practice developments. This post is
managed by a probation senior manager and based at police headquarters.

• The clarification and rationalisation of risk registration, ensuring that all offenders are
managed according to their assessed level of risk of harm and avoiding ‘over-registration’.

• Specific coaching and training for probation and police staff – to be followed by further multi-
agency training.

• Revision of the Devon & Cornwall Probation Area public protection procedures.

• Revision of the Devon & Cornwall MAPPP protocol to include a wider range of signatories
(currently in process).

• Provision of a dedicated sergeant responsible for development of policies and practices

relating to the management of dangerous offenders and four additional full-time constables
{one per Basic Command Unit} directly responsible for the management of high risk of harm
offenders within Devon & Cornwall Police Authority. {Eight Constables in total}

This report will provide further details of arrangements made in Devon and Cornwall and give
contact points for any additional enquiries including agencies other than Police and Probation.
