REFERENCE NO: 39/2005 ISSUE DATE: 27 May 2005 IMPLEMENTATION DATE: Immediate EXPIRY DATE: 1 September 2005 TO: Chairs of Probation Boards Chief Officers of Probation Secretaries of Probation Boards CC: Board Treasurers Regional Managers AUTHORISED BY: John Scott, Head of Public Protection and Licensed Release Unit ATTACHED: Annex A – National MAPPA workgroup – Consultation Paper

ACTION
Chief Officers to ensure that the consultation paper is disseminated to other Responsible Authority and Duty to Co-operate senior partners within their Area, that discussion and feedback is co-ordinated through the Strategic Management Board and that formal responses are forwarded to the PPU by 9 September 2005.

SUMMARY
The MAPPA Guidance was issued in March 2003 and established a national framework for arrangements to assess and manage the risk posed by sexual and violent offenders. An evaluation of those arrangements, commissioned by the Home Office, was undertaken in 2004 by De Montfort University and resulted in a number of provisional recommendations that were made available to the Responsible Authority National Steering Group (RANSG) in October 2004. In order to address those the RANSG convened a national workgroup to consider the developmental changes required of the MAPPA Guidance. This consultation paper is the product of the national workgroup. It has been endorsed by the RANSG as the basis of wider consultation with Responsible Authorities across England and Wales and with Duty to Co-operate partners through the strategic management boards (SMBs). In addition to clarifying roles and processes within the operational elements of MAPPA the paper offers a costing model for the co-ordination and administrative support to MAPPA.

The Management and Administrative Support Requirements for MAPPA
1. Context The Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) are growing significantly in response to an increasing number of sexual and violent offenders falling within the legislative framework. Of the 40,000 offenders identified in MAPPA annual reports for 2003/4 approximately 5% (2,000) were managed at Level 3 (MAPPP) and it has been estimated that about 20% (8,000) were managed at Level 2 (the requirement to record Level 2 risk management has been included in this year’s report). This meant that there were approximately 10,000 offenders who were brought into some form of multi-agency risk management process for consideration and review. Evidence suggests that the size of MAPPA will continue to grow not least because the register for sex offenders (Category 1) will increase from the current number of 27,000 to 125,000 in the course of the next twenty years before it has stabilized. Therefore it is vital at this comparatively early stage in development that we strengthen the management of MAPPA and refine the standards and expectations on both the Responsible Authority and Duty to Co-operate agencies. The fundamental purpose of MAPPA is public safety, the protection of victims and the reduction of serious harm. Like other effective multi-agency processes, the MAPPA offers the potential for a co-ordinated approach to the management of sexual and violent offenders in the community who pose a risk of serious harm to others. Rooted in the Human Rights Act principles of necessity and proportionality, MAPPA acknowledges the complex nature of much serious re-offending behaviour which often prevents any single agency from being able to deliver an effective risk management plan alone. Rather MAPPA recognizes that a coordinated risk management plan combining members of the Responsible Authority and the duty to co-operate agencies offers the best chance of achieving public safety. The De Montfort research undertaken in 2004, and soon to be published, has highlighted the central importance to MAPPA of the co-ordination/ management function. Though mentioned in the MAPPA Guidance there was insufficient detail to distinguish the responsibilities of the MAPPA Co-ordinator clearly. This paper will address this and also the minimum standards that should be applied nationally to both Responsible Authority and Duty to Co-operate agencies in respect of key MAPPA processes. 2. MAPPA Coordination/ Management • In small areas it may be possible to conceive of coordination as being the role undertaken by an individual. In larger or more complex areas coordination may be undertaken by several people within the Responsible Authority • MAPPA Coordination/ Management describes a set of functions that are designed to allow all agencies who have a statutory responsibility under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 (s325-327) to do the following:Tim Bryan PPU - 5/26/2005 1

Consultation Paper
o To receive details of all offenders who pose a risk of serious harm to others and for whom a multi-agency risk management plan is necessary in order to manage that risk. o To make referral of sexual or violent offenders whose risk of serious harm they consider needs to be managed through a multi-agency meeting at either Level 2 or Level 3 (MAPPP). o To share information relevant to the management of serious harm with other agencies within MAPPA on the basis that that information will be held securely and used by appropriate personnel within those agencies for public protection purposes only. o To help determine if their agency is a core partner in terms of the delivery of risk assessment and risk management plans that address the risk of serious harm. o To receive the risk management plans and notes from all relevant Level 2 and Level 3 (MAPPP) meetings showing clearly the status of each offender, the agencies delivering components of the plan and timescale, and the point at which the offender exits the multi-agency risk management process. o To provide a single point of contact and advice on all aspects of MAPPA. • Importantly it is a dedicated function carried out on behalf of the Responsible Authority, accountable to the Strategic Management Board (SMB) and designed to facilitate multi-agency risk management being focused on the right people in a timely and efficient manner, delivering robust and defensible plans that address known indicators of serious harm to others. For the purposes of this paper it is also separate from the chairing responsibilities of Level 2 / Level 3 meetings. The 42 Areas of England and Wales vary considerably in terms of their size, MAPPA population and organizational boundaries. Costings will be produced based on the actions associated annually with MAPPA coordination/ management for three different sized areas (small, medium & large) in terms of the notifications of offenders, pre-meeting information exchange, the referrals to Level 2 and Level 3 (MAPPP) risk management meeting and the preparation of notes for each Level 2 and Level 3 (MAPPP) and the accompanying risk management plans. The following minimum standards for MAPPA Coordination/ Management (MC) should be applied consistently across England and Wales.

3. Key Stages within MAPPA – 1) MAPPA nominal, 2) MAPPA Referral, 3) MAPPA Graduate ViSOR (the violent and sex offender register) is the national database for all sex and violent offenders within MAPPA designed by PITO (Police Information Technology Organisation) for police and probation areas across England and Wales. As such it must be updated at the earliest opportunity when a MAPPA offender enters MAPPA (Stage 1), is referred for multi-agency management (Stage 2) or exits MAPPA (Stage 3). Agencies Tim Bryan PPU - 5/26/2005 2

Consultation Paper
having access to ViSOR (currently only the police) will be able to input this information directly. However, where ViSOR is not available that information must be passed to the MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager so that this can be done. Stage 1 – (MAPPA nominal) knowledge that an offender falls within the remit of MAPPA will generally be the responsibility of one of the following agencies; probation, prisons, police, youth offending team or mental health services. Therefore it is vital that where an offender is identified the agency immediately updates ViSOR either directly or through the MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager. Entry into MAPPA is determined by S.325-327 CJA 2003 and relates to convictions or cautions for sexual or violent offending. Stage 1 notifications are therefore most likely to occur following sentence or prior to release from custody. Stage 2 – (MAPPA Referral) the referral of an offender to Level 2 or Level 3 (MAPPP) risk management is on the basis that the risk posed of serious harm requires management through a multi-agency risk management plan. Stage 2 referrals are made by police and probation primarily in respect of Category 1 and Category 2 offenders, but from all agencies (Responsible Authority and Duty to Co-operate) for Category 3 offenders. Stage 3 – (MAPPA Graduate) the exit of an offender from MAPPA is determined by the length of sex offender registration or licence supervison (for Category 1 & 2 offenders) which ever is the longer, or when the offender is no longer considered to pose a risk of serious harm by the Responsible Authority (for Category 3 offenders). 3.1 Stage 1 - Notification of entry into MAPPA • The Responsible Authority must be clear as to which offenders fall within the remit of MAPPA at any particular time regardless of the level at which their risk of harm is managed. To ensure this occurs each agency having knowledge of a relevant offender must at the earliest opportunity make a Stage 1 notification to the MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager so that the details can be recorded on ViSOR. Where an agency has direct access to ViSOR the Stage 1 notification will occur on completion of the ViSOR record. Stage 1 notifications are NOT generally shared with other agencies but if the offender remains at Level 1 (Ordinary Agency Management) the managing agency may still share information with selected agencies. The MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager will provide the single point of contact for the Responsible Authority for all Stage 1 notifications o The notification should be made at the earliest possible opportunity and for low or moderate risk offenders NOT LATER than 3 working days after release into the community or sex offender registration with police. (Target) o For an offender considered likely to pose a risk of serious harm that requires management at Level 2 or Level 3 (MAPPP) Stage 1 notification must be completed sufficiently early to allow Stage 2 referral and Level 2 or Level 3 (MAPPP) meetings to occur prior to release.

Consultation Paper
The MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager will be responsible for the quality audit of Stage 1 notifications and will provide management information for the SMB in respect of Stage 1 notifications and the reporting agencies. All Stage 1 notifications that do not meet the threshold of entry into MAPPA will be noted and the managing agency informed of the reason why they were NOT suitable for MAPPA. (it will be vital that there are clear links into child protection conferences, the care programme approach and domestic abuse forum in particular) National Offender Management Service (Probation & Prisons). The majority of Stage 1 notifications will result from a sentence of imprisonment for a sexual or violent offence. The development of OASys, the introduction of an end-to-end offender management approach and the availability of sentences for public protection should all ensure that such offenders who are subject to MAPPA are more readily identified at the point of sentence. Stage 1 notifications must be made at this point to the MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager for the owning area. Police. The requirements of the Sex Offenders Act mean that all sex offenders cautioned or convicted and not receiving a custodial sentence must register with local police within 3 days of sentence/ caution. These registration details should be automatically entered into ViSOR and will form the Stage 1 notification. Youth Offending Teams. Young people who commit sexual and violent offences fall within the remit of MAPPA in the same way as adults, although periods of registration for sex offences may be for short periods. Where they are sentenced to a period of custody may be held in a variety of institution eg. Local authority secure home, secure training centre or youth offending institute. Whatever the setting it will be the responsibility of the offender manager to make the Stage 1 notification. Mental Health Secure Units. Offenders who commit sexual and violent offences and receive a hospital or guardianship order are subject to MAPPA. MSUs and high secure hospitals therefore have the responsibility to make the Stage 1 notification to the owning area.

3.2. Stage 1 - Actions following notification • By virtue of these entry requirements to MAPPA, all offenders subject to Stage 1 notifications are already being managed by either an offender manager, by a police sex offender registration officer or by a clinician. Therefore following notification to the MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager and entry on ViSOR, the managing agency must determine whether the offender poses a risk of serious harm in the community AND whether at this stage a multi-agency risk management plan is required in order to manage that risk either immediately or within the next 6 months, pending release. Where the managing agency considers this is necessary it must make a Stage 2 Referral immediately to the MAPPA Coordinator/ Manager (see below). Where the MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager does not receive a Stage 2 referral within 5 working days of Stage 1 notification it will assume that the managing agency is addressing all the risk of harm issues through ordinary agency mechanisms. (With increasing periods of licence supervision, a 4

number of Category 1 offenders will be covered by a requirement to register with police as well as on licence to probation. This of itself does not amount to a requirement to be managed at Level 2 although good practice would expect police and probation case managers to co-ordinate their respective tasks.) 3.3. Stage 2- Referral to multi-agency risk management • The decision to place a MAPPA offender into the Level 2 / Level 3 (MAPPP) is the responsibility of a senior manager within the managing agency and should be noted on agency records and immediately conveyed to the MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager. (The MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager is able to challenge that decision if it is believed the following threshold has not been met) That decision must be based upon the information available that indicates that the offender poses a high or very high risk of serious harm to others and the delivery of an effective risk management plan requires the active collaboration of a number of responsible authority and duty to co-operate agencies. The converse of this would be that failure to convene such a Level 2 risk meeting would be held to be indefensible on the basis of the risk assessment and other relevant information currently available. In exceptional circumstances offenders posing lower risk of harm may be appropriately referred to Level 2 risk meetings if there are aspects of the case that require the multi-agency collaboration (eg. local notoriety/ threats to the offender). o For Stage 2 referrals received from duty to co-operate agencies the MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager will exercise professional judgment, on behalf of the Responsible Authority, as to the appropriateness of the referral, in terms of the offender falling within the remit of MAPPA and the level of the risk of serious harm is sufficient to require multi-agency risk management. All Stage 2 referrals require the following; o The managing agency will attach all relevant information regarding the likelihood of re-offending, the risk of serious harm (when and to whom) and any indication of imminence, together with the summary of any formal risk assessment undertaken. (It is not envisaged this would be the full OASys analysis.) o The managing agency should identify the factors known to contribute to the risk of serious harm and that require management through a multiagency public protection process o The managing agency should also identify any core agency central to the delivery of an effective risk management plan and any other known agency currently involved in management of care of the offender. o The date of the initial Level 2/ Level 3 (MAPPP). o (On the basis of the above the managing agency will propose a multiagency risk management plan)

3.4. Stage 2 - Pre-Meeting Information Sharing • Formalised pre-meeting information sharing is a new and important component of effective multi-agency risk management which will ensure the following o All responsible and duty to co-operate agencies are aware of the referral o All agencies have an opportunity to identify relevant information held by them and to decide whether to share under MAPPA o All agencies have the opportunity to identify if they consider themselves to be a core agency to the risk management plan o Decreases the amount of time spent exchanging information at Level 2/ Level 3 (MAPPP) meetings so that they are able to focus on issues of risk assessment and risk management. Clarifying the threshold for Level 3 (MAPPP): The definition in paragraph 116 of the MAPPA Guidance remains the basis of the threshold but as with Level 2 referrals, the referral to Level 3 (MAPPP) must identify those aspects of the risk management plan that require the multi agency collaboration and which cannot be effectively delivered at the Level 2 risk meeting. An initial Level 2 meeting must occur within 20 working days of referral and an initial level 3 meeting must occur within 5 working days of referral. (Target) The information included by the managing agency in the Stage 2 referral will be passed to all members of the Responsible Authority and Duty to Co-operate agencies either directly by the managing agency or by the MAPPA Co-ordinator/ Manager. This will require the receiving agencies to have a single point of contact (SPOC) through whom this information can be securely passed. At point of information exchange the receiving agency will be requested to search agency records for any relevant information on this offender or potential victims be ascertained. The search and response should be completed within 5 working days ( Target) and forwarded to either the managing agency or the MAPPA coordinator/ manager (as directed) in the following terms; If nothing found – no trace/negative reply If material found but not relevant – positive trace/negative reply If material found and relevant – positive trace/positive reply and share the relevant information with either the managing agency or the MAPPA co-ordinator/ manager (as directed) for the sole purpose of public protection and reducing the likelihood of re-offending. If material found and relevance not clear – positive trace/further consideration required. The response should also indicate whether the agency considers itself to be core to the risk assessment and management process under MAPPA and whether it will attend the initial Level 2/ Level 3 MAPPP. The Responsible Authority should agree with DTC agencies, through the SMB and the memorandum of understanding, the agreed method of communication between the MAPPA co-ordinator/ manager and the single points of contact. 6

3.5 Stage 2 – Initial Level 2 and Level 3 meetings. o Key principles The product of the pre-information information exchange will be available for all agencies attending. The purpose of the meeting is to bring any additional relevant information (or assist any agency to determine relevance), to note the outcome of risk assessment tools in terms of likelihood of reoffending, serious harm and imminence, and agree those aspects of behaviour/ circumstances that are critical to delivering an effective risk management plan. Design a risk management plan that addresses these critical factors. The plan must be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timed and clearly identify ownership. The risk plan must be formally reviewed at a specified future date. Where an element of risk management cannot be delivered by local agencies through the Level 2 meeting, consideration must be given to referring this element to the Level 3 (MAPPP). Where the multi-agency aspect of the risk management plan has been delivered and risk of serious harm has reduced, consideration must be given to referring the case back to Level 1 (appropriate for Category 1 and Category 2 offenders) or out of MAPPA. 4. Organizing appropriate attendance at the Level 2 and Level 3 (MAPPP) Multi agency risk management is an expensive resource and should only be used where it is necessary to manage the risk of serious harm in a collaborative and co-ordinated manner. Involvement of agencies when they have no information or advice to offer and no provision of services to the offender wastes their time and may undermine their involvement in other relevant cases. As the referrals to Level 2 risk management increase it vital that the MAPPA co-ordinator/ manager maintains a flexible and yet focused approach ensuring the right agencies are in attendance to develop the right risk management plans for the right offenders A critical role of the MAPPA co-ordinator/ manager, in conjunction with the managing agency will therefore be to identify which agencies will be central (core) to the delivery of a risk management plan. For some offenders this will be readily apparent and may be identified by the managing agency in the Stage 2 referral. In other cases it will become clear only after the premeeting information exchange and agencies have searched their own records for trace of engagement with the offender. Core membership may also change over time. In inviting agencies to the Level 2 and Level 3 (MAPPP) the MAPPA co-ordinator/ manager must indicate whether an agency is considered central (core). Tim Bryan PPU - 5/26/2005 7

Victim contact should be separately shown even where provided by the probation or police service. Given that Level 2 risk meetings have traditionally run for several hours and considered the risk management plans of a large number of offenders, the challenge to the MAPPA co-ordinator/ manager is to organize the agenda so that the involvement of different agencies can be maximized. For instance it is recognized that probation, police, social services and housing may be central (core) to the majority of offenders however, mental health, the local education authority and the youth offending team may only be central (core) to a few. This greater precision to multi-agency risk management invitations will also help to strengthen the audit capability for the attendance of central (core) agencies and their contribution to the risk management plans. 5. Agenda and notes of Level 2 and Level 3 (MAPPP) i. The De Montfort research is critical that too much time is often taken up with story-telling and information exchange and insufficient time given to determining the nature and scale of the risk posed (in terms of the likelihood of re-offending, the risk of serious harm (when and to whom), any indication of imminence and those aspects of behaviour or the offender’s circumstances that are critical to effective management). Paragraph 122 of MAPPA Guidance is still relevant. ii. The minutes of the Level 2 and Level 3 (MAPPP) should be produced within 10 working days and sent under confidential cover to the member of the central (core) agencies through the SPOC (Target). They should summarise the Stage 2 referral and reference the pre-information exchange. They must show clearly how risk is assessed, the critical aspects for risk management and the risk management plan detailing specifically the actions, the person responsible for each particular action and the timescale for completion. A date for review must also be set. The agency must determine how such notes are stored securely and can be accessed in the event of an emergency or by other agency personnel having legitimate access. iii. It is also proposed that the stance on the disclosure of information to the offender should be change drastically. Instead of the presumption of secrecy and the retention of all Level 2/ Level 3 (MAPPP) notes as confidential, these notes should be seen as open documents for the offender unless there are specific elements that should be protected ( eg to protect a vulnerable victim, the sensitive source of information or covert policing methods that are Tim Bryan PPU - 5/26/2005 8

designed to detect or reduce serious offending). This change of emphasis reflects the environment most agencies now work in with subject access requests under data protection guidelines. It is clearly important that these notes indicate explicitly what information is NOT discloseable to the offender and the reasons why such disclosure is restricted. In a small number of cases it is anticipated that disclosure of any nature would properly be resisted on the basis that it would heighten the risk of serious harm to others or self. This will also facilitate decisions at a later stage about access to notes, for example from the Parole Board. The confidentiality associated with the notes containing personal data would be unaltered. In time it is anticipated that the role and responsibility of the offender in self-management will be more explicitly acknowledged in the risk meetings. This is in line with existing good practice for a number of Responsible Authority and DTC agencies. And while the offender would not be generally invited to the Level 2/ Level 3 (MAPPP) there should be a clearly stated mechanism for consulting with the offender both before and after risk meetings. Review meetings will primarily be a review of the risk plan, whether the actions have been delivered, whether any new information has been received that alters the risk assessment and whether there continues to be a need to manage the risk of serious harm in this multi-agency forum. It is expected that all Responsible Authority and Duty to Cooperate agencies will continue to have a responsibility to inform the MAPPA co-ordinator/ manager of any information they receive that indicates a change in the risk of serious harm posed by an offender, in either a positive or negative manner. In order that the risk management process can be seen to be proportionate and fair issues of diversity must be included in personal data recorded for offenders and victims.
