Minesterial Foreword These are the sixth MAPPA annual reports, and the first with a foreword by the Ministry of Justice. I want, first of all, to underline the Government’s continued commitment to these arrangements. Protecting the public from dangerous offenders is a core aim for the new Department. Just as the effectiveness of MAPPA locally depends on the quality of working relationships, we will work with the Home Office, the Police, and others, to develop the best possible framework within which the MAPPA can operate. On 13 June, the Government published a Review of the Protection of Children from Sex Offenders. This sets out a programme of actions which include developing the use of drug treatment for sex offenders and piloting the use of compulsory polygraph testing as a risk management tool, enhancements to the regime operating at Approved Premises, and also a range of actions impacting directly upon the way the MAPPA work. I want to highlight two of them here. Firstly, research tells us that the arrangements are already used successfully to disclose information about dangerous offenders but we think this can be improved upon. MAPPA agencies will be required to consider disclosure in every case. We will pilot a scheme where parents will be able to register a childprotection interest in a named individual with whom they have a personal relationship and who has regular unsupervised access to their child. If that person has convictions for child sex offences and the child is at risk, there will be a presumption that the offences will be disclosed to the parent. Secondly, as MAPPA has developed over the past 6 years, best practice models have been identified which show that specific roles and approaches are required to ensure it is managed effectively. We are committed to strengthening MAPPA arrangements and ensuring that robust performance management is in place. To achieve this, we intend to introduce new national standards, which will ensure a consistent approach across Areas and we will be making available £1.2million to support Areas in implementing the standards. We aim to do everything that can reasonably be done to protect people from known, dangerous offenders. We know that there is always room for improvement. I commend this annual report to you as an indication of the commitment, skills and achievements of the professionals, and lay advisers, in managing and monitoring this essential, often difficult area of business.

The Chief Officers introduction from the Staffordshire Responsible Authority
This has undoubtedly been a year in which Criminal Justice and Public Protection have remained very much in the public arena. Furthermore a year in which the Home Office has been subject to scrutiny. At local level we would like to draw your attention to the complexities of public protection, and our successes in preventing serious harm and in managing risk. During this year we have continued to forge ever better links across the responsible authority, for example with the prison service through improved systems for offender management. Also with key partners in; children’s services in safeguarding children, with health in offering services to those with mental health issues, and with Youth Offending Services in managing the transition from youth to adulthood. We currently monitor over 1700 offenders in Staffordshire who are subject to MAPPA, including over 600 registered sex offenders in the community. Our compliance rate with registration remains over 99% and have only 4 outstanding cases of failure to register. One of these individuals is thought to be no longer alive, and three are living abroad. Of those 1700 inevitably some have re offended during this year, including a very small proportion resulting in very serious criminal offences. We do appreciate the impact that this has on the victim, their family and the wider community. However we do work very hard to manage the risks as effectively as we can, although we always acknowledged that we can never completely eliminate risk. Cases are examined in detail when serious harm occurs and lessons are drawn to inform policy, and training. These are applied to improve practice. The case studies in this report reflect some of the positive work that has been done to reduce risk. We therefore look forward to the future with some confidence in our ability to protect local communities. In Staffordshire we assure you that all the agencies, working closely together on your behalf are ever watchful. With your help, we stand the best chance of making our communities even safer.

Chair s Statement - Suzette Davenport ACC
I endorse the Responsible Authority comments and commend this report to you as an honest attempt to convey the difficult and complex work of MAPPA in Staffordshire. I can assure you that a great deal of hard work, often by its very nature unseen and unreported, does go on behind the scenes in trying to best ensure your safety. Public protection staff working both locally and centrally attempt to identify the most risky cases. They then use the MAPPA process to help local agencies to share information, and jointly decide how best to manage the risk a particular offender poses, in the most effective way possible.

Assistant Chief Constable Suzette Davenport
MBA BA

This year, we have delivered a considerable amount of training to a wide variety of staff in public protection and held a successful conference, disseminating good practice. Lessons learnt from enquires and inspections this year all inform training and business planning for next year and beyond. Based on my experience and knowledge our arrangements are as robust and successful as anywhere in the country. In many ways we lead the way and our recent work to improve cooperation across the region will further enhance our ability to protect the public. POLICE, PRISONS AND PROBATION WORKING TOGETHER IN STAFFORDSHIRE During this year after reviewing our 06-07 business plan we have; Introduced better coordinated arrangements for working together throughout a prisoner’s sentence. This is government policy and is called offender management. Improved systems between the Responsible Authorities to identify and record cases where a risk to children exists. Consolidated work by the police on the central national intelligence database for Mappa offenders, called ViSOR. There are also plans to introduce this across all Staffordshire prisons and the probation service. Continued to build closer collaboration and cooperation across agencies, by sharing risk information and getting better at working together. Been recognised nationally as a leading Mappa area in certain aspects of our work, including arrangements to review experience and promote training. Disseminated good practice by organising and attending local regional and national conferences, including one for Lay Advisers.

As well as Police, Prisons and Probation, who else works with Mappa?
In essence every other agency that can make a contribution towards public safety, has a "duty to cooperate" with Mappa in managing dangerous offenders. This includes those working with children, vulnerable adults, the mentally ill, young offenders, and those providing housing. This can include some private contractors. Here are some examples of local agencies working on your behalf.

Services from the Local Authorities
The Staffordshire Local Authorities have a duty to co-operate with MAPPA in relation to violent and sexual offenders who can present significant risks to vulnerable people for whom the Council has responsibilities and to Council staff. The two main departments which regularly contribute to MAPPA are Social Care and Health and Children and Lifelong Learning. Adult Social Care may be involved in providing services to offenders who have additional needs, for example mental health difficulties. Services need to coordinate their work with other agencies involved with the offender so they can address needs and risks effectively. Adult Social Care may also play an important role in the protection of vulnerable adults who may be specifically at risk from a dangerous offender. Children and Lifelong Learning has responsibility for safeguarding children, therefore need to be fully aware of all information about offenders who may present a risk to children, so they can take action to protect them. Children and Lifelong Learning also work with MAPPA to manage the risks posed by young people who have committed serious offences. The Education Welfare Service contributes to the MAPPA Youth Panels to ensure that education services are properly involved in sharing information and planning.

Services from Local Health Care Trusts
Mental ill health can affect us all, and can be a factor in assessing the risk a particular offender poses. In that sense the services available to offenders are largely the same as those available to the general public. We have a variety of community and hospital based provision in Staffordshire. Links are also established between mental health services in prisons, and those in the community. These services can help diagnose, and treat those with mental illness, and help provide support to them and their families. This can also include help with alcohol and drug addiction. In recent years, coordination of services to offenders has improved in better liaison between the prisons and the community, and better links with Mappa. Representatives from mental health services now routinely attend Mappa panels, and make a vital contribution. Whilst mental health can clearly be a factor in offending, sometimes with tragic results, most mentally disordered offenders do respond to treatment, and can be maintained safely in the community.

Services to Young Offenders
Staffordshire and Stoke Youth Offending Services are active members of Mappa. In line with legislation they have a duty to co-operate within multi agency public protection arrangements. YOS has a risk management policy and procedure in line with national guidance. This system assesses all young people for their risk of re-offending and harm to self or others. Those young people deemed to be at the highest levels of risk are offered more intensive supervision and input from the most experienced and qualified members of its staff. The Service attends all MAPPA youth panels and is actively involved in the formulation of public protection plans and the supervision of young people within the community. (This is supported by internal arrangements to review high risk individuals.) The Service is committed to working with its partners in providing robust services, the primary aims of which are reducing offending, protecting the public and supporting victims.

The Housing Resettlement of MAPPA Offenders - A Partnership Approach
On their release from prison nearly all sexual and violent offenders will continue to serve the rest of their sentence in the community ’under licence’. Many will be required to reside in Approved Premises ( probation hostels) where they receive a high degree of supervision and support from probation staff. Length of stay in approved premises can be up to 12 months during which time offenders are helped to move on to other appropriate accommodation. This work is co-ordinated by staff in the Staffordshire Probation Area Accommodation Unit who, are tasked to match the risk and needs of offenders, with available accommodation this must also fit with other probation plans for that offender. Working with existing agreements Unit staff share information and work together with Local Housing Authorities and Registered Social Landlords to secure appropriate move on accommodation. The Accommodation Officers also routinely attend MAPPA panels. Representatives from housing providers agreeing in principle to house a MAPPA offender are invited to attend MAPPA panels as appropriate. Police and probation staff must assess and approve any accommodation offered to an offender before they are allowed to move in. Under arrangements with Heantun Housing Association staff, some offenders are subject to further monitoring and support after their licence has finished. The Scheme is welcomed by the local MAPPA and has a high level of multi-agency support.

Under the Scheme regular home visits are made to offenders by Public Protection Liaison Officers in close liaison with the Police and/or Probation case manager as appropriate. The aim is to help offenders to secure and maintain appropriate accommodation and to contribute to the assessment of risk and their effective management in the community. In 2006/07 the Scheme provided services to over 30 offenders. The service was singled out as an example of positive practice in the 2004 HMIP Staffordshire Effective Supervision Inspection Report and won the Howard League for Penal Reform Community Programmes Award in 2005. More recently the Scheme has been highlighted as an example of good practice in Inside Housing, April 2007. By co-operating and working together Criminal Justice Agencies, Local Housing Services, Registered Social Landlords and other Voluntary and Community Sector organisations are making an important contribution to the risk management of sexual and violent offenders in the community. Whilst it is not possible to eliminate risk entirely by helping to manage the risk posed by each offender these agencies are working in partnership to reduce the risk of re-offending and to make Staffordshire a safer place in which to live.

Each area has two lay advisers to represent the public and the community view within MAPPA.

Our Lay Adviser speaks
In February I attended the National Mappa Lay Adviser’s conference in Leeds. It was useful to meet so many different Lay Advisers and practitioners from all over the country. I gained a real opportunity to learn and exchange ideas on best practice from a wide range of very different people. I listened to many speakers giving us information on their services within Mappa, including the plight of victims and services to help them. When Mappa and local communities join forces effectively, they can make a real difference in protecting our communities. Everyone has a part to play in making Staffordshire safer. The agencies need your help to monitor the offenders that live amongst us. Beverley Anderson

Case Studies
What happens to offenders in a typical case?
Whilst all cases are different, this is the broad approach that we generally use in managing Mappa offenders. Most Mappa offenders are sentenced to imprisonment and therefore we are planning for their release back into the community, when they are judged to be safe enough to do so, or they reach the end of their sentence. We convene a Mappa panel to bring together local police, probation representatives, prison staff who are dealing with the particular offender and any other community representatives that may be relevant, for example mental health or children’s services. We then share in detail what we know about the risk the offender presents, define as closely as we can what those risks are and to whom. Then most importantly we decide how we are going to manage those risks, and who is going to do what. Subsequent panels review those actions and monitor the case for as long as is necessary. This usually involves the offender living in Approved Premises in a Probation Hostel, away from where the offence occurred and the victim may live. Conditions and restrictions are applied to their licence such as curfew, and prohibition from certain activities like working with children, or places like parks, where potential victims may go. Further treatment will also be considered, and restrictions will reduce, and community integration through work and normal activity increase, as they demonstrate compliance. If however behaviour and risk deteriorate, restrictions can be maintained or increased, or offenders can be returned to prison. Here are two real case examples, dealt with this year. Names and some details have been changed to protect both victims and offenders.

Mappa case: Lee
Lee was sentenced to 4‰ years imprisonment for Attempted Rape. He attacked a young woman. He left her unconscious having attempted to strangle her. In prison he completed the Sex Offender Treatment Programme, and made some progress towards accepting the seriousness of his actions and the likely impact on an innocent young victim. He was released without parole, having served his full term of imprisonment. He was then supervised on licence at a Probation Hostel, on strict licence conditions designedto protect the victim, ensure a suitable level of monitoring, and compliance with further treatment. His licence was relatively short, and Mappa had to make plans for his transition back into the community, to independent accommodation.

MAPPA

Staffordshire MAPPA Annual Report 2006-07

‘helping to make a Safer Staffordshire’
This was achieved, the victim was kept informed, and agencies decided to maintain some monitoring arrangements beyond his licence period, to offer the best chance of protecting the public. To date, the police continue to monitor him as a registered sex offender, and he has not re offended in the year following release from prison.

Mappa case: Tracy
Tracy has a history of violent and unpredictable behaviour. She is assessed as suffering from a personality disorder, and is supported by mental health services. When mentally ill, she committed a Robbery, threatening a shop keeper with a knife, and was sentenced to a community order, with a condition to live at a Probation Hostel. Whilst resident at the Hostel she struggled to cope with attempts to control and improve her understanding and behaviour, and was eventually arrested by the police for an assault on a member of staff. She is currently in prison on remand, awaiting sentence. A further psychiatric assessment has been made, and the necessary agencies are working together to agree a workable plan for her eventual release. This is likely to involve specialist long term mental health provision, in a residential setting. There it is hoped her will be able to make slow, but steady progress towards greater self awareness and self control, and learn other ways to deal with her frustrations, rather than using violence. This approach offers the potential for long term public protection.

How many MAPPA offenders in each of the three Categories RSOs i.e. (1)-RSOs, (2)-V&O and (3)-Other Offenders have been managed through the MAPPP (level 3) and through local V&O inter-agency risk management (level 2) between 1st April 2006 and 31st March 2007.

The level 3 figure is the 'critical few'. The criteria for referring a case to the MAPPP are defined in MAPPA Guidance as those in which the offender: Is assessed under OASys as being a high or very high risk of causing serious harm; AND Presents risks that can only be managed by a plan which requires close co-operation at a senior level due to the complexity of the case and/or because of the unusual resource commitments it requires: OR Although not assessed as a high or very high risk, the case is exceptional because the likelihood of media scrutiny and/or public interest in the management of the case is very high and there is a need to ensure that public confidence in the criminal justice system is sustained. The level 2 figure is those offenders who require the active involvement of more than one agency but the complexity of managing the risk is not so great as to require referral to Level 3, the MAPPP ix. Of the cases managed at levels 3 or 2 i.e. between the 1st April 2006 and 31st March 2007 how many, whilst managed at that level: Level 3 (a) Were returned to custody for a breach of licence (b) Were returned to custody for a breach of restraining or sexual offences prevention order (c) Were charged with a serious sexual or violent offence 5. 9 0 0 Level 2 39 3 3

What do the figures mean? Together with the Home Office and now the Ministry of Justice, at local level we collect information to give you the public some reassurance about how we are dealing with serious crime, under Mappa. Some of the figures will have fallen and some have risen reflecting the greater numbers of offenders being tracked by Mappa. The number of offenders returned to custody for breach of licence has increased significantly, and whilst there are cases of serious re offending , these remain relatively very low.
