Ministerial Foreword
Making our communities safer and reducing re-offending is our highest priority and one of our biggest challenges. That is why the work undertaken through these multi-agency public protection arrangements (MAPPA) is so important. The supervision and management of sexual and violent offenders who pose the highest risk of serious harm, whether in the community or in custody, is complex and challenging; and is an aspect of public service where the public rightly expects all reasonable action to be taken. Although we have made significant progress in the last five years with the development of MAPPA across England and Wales, the review this year of a number of tragic incidents where people have been murdered or seriously injured reminded us of the importance of reviewing performance, improving practice and learning lessons. It is vital that these tasks are undertaken by the probation, police and prison services, as well as by those other agencies that contribute to the assessment and management of offenders. The publication of MAPPA Business Plans by each Area in this year’s annual reports offers a helpful and necessary programme of local development and review and must lead to enhanced practice. It will be essential that this progress is transparent and shared with local communities. In addition to this, however, it is important that no opportunity is missed to consider other measures that will further enhance public safety.That is why we are undertaking the Child Sex Offender Review, to look at how a particular group of offenders, who provoke anxiety for many, are best managed in the community.The review is consulting a wide range of practitioners and key stakeholders including the MAPPA lay advisers, and will report around the end of the year. Finally, in commending this report to you, I want to take the opportunity to thank all those involved locally in working with sexual and violent offenders, or in ensuring that these arrangements are fit for purpose. Where MAPPA is working well it is based on maintaining high professional standards and effective multi-agency collaboration in the delivery of robust risk management plans.While it is not possible to eliminate risk entirely, where all reasonable action is taken the risk of further serious harm can be reduced to a minimum and fewer victims will be exposed to repeat offending.

2. Introduction
Public protection and managing all offenders in the community has come under increased public scrutiny in the past 12 months. It is important that all agencies focus their efforts on ensuring those people living in communities are effectively supervised and supported in order to ensure they are prevented from committing serious offences. The joint arrangements for the assessment and management of those offenders who fall under the MAPPA have continued to demonstrate sound interventions in managing offenders in the community. Our joint Police/Probation Public Protection Unit is now well established and has already brought added benefits to our work in this field. The involvement of the Prison Service as a ‘responsible authority’ alongside Police and Probation has also further enhanced our work with those offenders who have served part of their sentence in custody. However, protecting the public from, and preventing re-offending by, those who fall under the scope of MAPPA is not solely the responsibility of these criminal justice agencies. Other partners such as Health and Housing Authorities have a key role to play in helping us to manage any risk which such offenders may pose. Our relationship with Housing Authorities has been enhanced by the provision of a protocol for returning prisoners which should ensure more appropriate access to suitable accommodation. The Strategic Management Board, which has the benefit of Lay advisors who can play a meaningful and important role in bringing a community perspective to the work of the Board, has completed a Business Plan which should see greater focus on partnership working. Although it is important to recognise that we will never totally eliminate risk, we hope that this report reassures you about the strength of our local arrangements and that it also gives you a flavour of how “working together” really does contribute to protecting the public, fewer victims and making our communities safer.

3. How MAPPA operate locally
MAPPA stands for Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements – a set of arrangements established by Police, Probation and the Prison Service (known as the Responsible Authority) to assess and manage the risk posed by sexual and violent offenders. Other agencies that co-operate in MAPPA include youth offending teams, Jobcentre Plus, local education authorities, local housing authorities, registered social landlords, social services, strategic health authorities, Care Trusts and NHS Trusts, and electronic monitoring providers. An increasing number of agencies are becoming aware of MAPPA procedures and are making appropriate referrals to the Probation /Police Joint Unit. Using the procedures we can effectively assess and manage the risks posed by sexual, violent and other dangerous offenders. Whenever a joint or multi agency approach would improve public protection, the Police, Probation, Prison and other agencies will share information and where necessary, convene a public protection meeting. Our protocol outlines arrangements for convening meetings at two levels: These meetings are chaired either by a Senior Probation Officer or Detective Sergeant from the Joint Police/Probation Public Protection Unit, depending on which service has primary responsibility for the high risk offender. – Consider where any disclosure should be made to the offender (the general principle being that the offender will be informed that he/she is high or very high risk unless members conclude that to inform the offender would increase the risks posed by him/her). – Review the potential to apply for a Sexual Offences Prevention Order. – Discuss the potential for increased surveillance by Police. If an individual is considered to be very high or high risk, their name will be placed on the registers held by the Cleveland Police and the National Probation Service – Teesside. A multi agency review panel meets every three months to review cases and ongoing monitoring by a range of professionals takes place to reduce risks as far as possible.

• Multi Agency Public Protection Panel (MAPPP)
To manage the critical few who are considered to pose a risk of serious harm to the public. These meetings are chaired either by an Assistant Director of Probation or Detective Inspector from the Joint Police /Probation Public Protection Unit, depending on which service has primary responsibility for the very high risk offender. The purpose of these meetings is to: – Bring together key professionals from relevant agencies to share and examine information that has led to a concern about an individual. – Share any other relevant information that an agency holds, which may assist in assessing the risks posed and the possible methods of intervention that may help to reduce the risks. – Decide and agree what actions are required as part of the risk management strategy and which agency/individual will have responsibility for implementation.

• Multi Agency Risk Management Meeting (RMM)
To manage the risk posed by those individuals who are considered high risk and whose management would benefit by being carried out on a multi agency footing rather than a single agency approach.

4. National Probation Service Teesside and Cleveland Police Public Protection Unit
In Cleveland, the Police and the Probation Service work alongside each other in a Joint Public Protection Unit. Probation Officers and Detective Constables jointly supervise those sexual and violent offenders who pose the highest risk of harm to the community. The unit benefits from the direction of a Senior Probation Officer and a Detective Sergeant who oversee all of the referrals into MAPPA as well as ensuring strategies are developed and delivered by Probation and Police staff working together, as well as other agencies who contribute to Risk Management Strategies. It is important to recognise that all agencies working in the community, especially Health, Housing and Social Services, can contribute significantly to risk management. We have increased our staff on both sides to meet the demands of ever increasing referrals and registrations of High and Very High Risk offenders. All Probation staff within the PPU have been trained in the use of VISOR and now input data together with Police in the unit. Excellent links have been established with HMP Holme House in respect of MAPPA offenders. Prison staff regularly attend MAPPA meetings providing essential intelligence and information appertaining to the registered offender. These links have resulted in offenders being moved to HMP Holme House immediately prior to their release to facilitate the early implementation of the Risk Management Plan. They have also Teesside has continued on from previous years building up the joint Police/Probation unit and increasingly involving the prison. The Public Protection Unit (PPU) continue to work together to manage some of the most serious offenders in Teesside. We also hold regular team meetings and joint development days at HMP Holme House. The Violent Sex Offender Register (VISOR) is now fully integrated in the PPU and the Prison Service is involved in pilots in some prisons. We now have joint Police/Probation files to ensure more efficient and speedier sharing of information. ensured that important security measures are in place, when necessary, to protect identified victims. External presentations and development days continue as more agencies become more proactive in managing these people. Our regional seminar in January 2006 was specifically aimed at the Strategic Management Board and development of a business plan for 2006/07, which will be continuously monitored by the SMB and specifically the three Responsible Authorities.
5

This Business Plan will focus the SMB over the next 12 months on improving the co-ordination and administration of MAPPA, review the structure and monitoring arrangements, introduce more robust systems for the collection of data and the review of Serious Further Offences (SFOs), and the overall training and communication strategy of the SMB.

Key Achievements 2005/06

Interest in public protection has increased and by working together we have demonstrated a proactive approach to managing risk in our communities. Effective links are maintained with the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) and the Local Criminal Justice Board (LCJB) through senior members of the responsible authorities representing their own agencies, but importantly ensuring that MAPPA is highlighted and kept firmly on the agenda.

5. Managing Risk
The following are examples of work undertaken by agencies in Cleveland.

Case Study 2 – Horatio
Horatio, aged 51 years, was convicted

Case Study 1 - Mark
Mark has a long list of previous violent convictions and his last sentence was for an aggravated burglary. Problems identified whilst in custody revealed Mark to have psychiatric problems and a lengthy history of drug and alcohol misuse with his behaviour being described as ‘unpredictable’ and ‘prone to violent outbursts’. Prior to his release a Multi Agency Public Protection Panel was convened involving the Probation Offender Manager, Approved Premises staff, Police, Prison, Community Mental Health and Social Services. A comprehensive plan was developed including residence at an Approved Premises, electronic tag curfew and exclusion zone as well as licence conditions to comply with mental health and drug agencies. Contact was also established with his previous victim in regard to securing an injunction against Mark, to protect his daughter should he try to remove her at the end of the school day and her school was notified of his return to the area. Mark has complied with his licence showing an improvement in his behaviour – regular MAPP review meetings have been held to monitor progress and to date the plan has been successful in both rehabilitating Mark back into the community and protecting his previous victims.

photographs where he received a 21 months prison sentence. Prior to his release a MAPPA was convened involving police, probation, prison and health. Whilst in prison he attended the Sex Offender Treatment Programme where he displayed some worrying behaviour and failure to accept responsibility for his offending and was registered as a High Risk Offender. He was later released into the community with licence conditions, which had been agreed by the MAPPA panel, in conjunction with a legal requirement to register on the Sex Offenders’ register. Prior to this conviction, he had already had convictions starting at the age of 24 years for indecent exposure x 3 which spanned a seven year period. At the age of 38 years he was further convicted of gross indecency with a male child. He continued to reoffend sexually towards male children and went on to commit offences of possessing and making indecent images on the Internet. He continued to be subject to MAPPA review and was monitored closely by reporting weekly to his Probation Officer and joint monthly contact with the Police.

He resided at his own home with his mother and had gained employment. He co-operated fully with the Police, Probation and NSPCC, undertaking relapse prevention. The Police were granted a Sexual Offences Prevention Order with a comprehensive list of prohibitions specific to child friendly areas and activities which prevented him accessing the Internet. He was registered by a MAPPP as a Very High Risk Offender where strategies included increased contact with agencies and continued relapse prevention work. Due to the intense scrutiny applied by Probation and Police, as soon as Horatio breached his Sexual Offences Prevention Order he was recalled to custody and is now awaiting sentence for further offences.

6. Prison Service involvement in MAPPA
Both HMP Holme House and HMP Kirklevington, the two local prisons in Cleveland are represented on the Strategic Management Board for Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements. Effective arrangements are in place to manage the risks that offenders may present on their release from custody. Prison Service representatives provide information to assist in drawing up action plans prior to release. Risk management teams have been established to manage risk issues, such as safeguarding children, harassment and particularly domestic violence. North East area prisons also provide assessment and treatment to sex offenders according to their level of risk. The Prison Service has a number of specialist sex offender teams in the North East trained to deliver a nationally accredited sex offender treatment programme to assist in reducing the risks presented by the offender. Some of the actions prisons can undertake cover restricting offenders’ communications, such as letters and telephone calls. The Interception of Communications Commissioner has a responsibility to ensure that there are good grounds to intercept correspondence or telephone calls. The test of appropriate interception is the balance of the individual’s rights and the necessity to protect the public. The multi-disciplinary team identify various groups of offenders who may present a significant risk and put appropriate provisions in place for monitoring and identifying which prisoners will be referred to the risk management meetings. Prisoners may be identified from the following groups: 7

• •

• •

Identifying risk
All offenders who have committed a specified sexual or violent offence under Schedule 15 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 are identified when they arrive in custody as prisoners subject to MAPPA. The standard assessment tool for the Probation and Prison Service is the Offender Assessment System (OASys); this provides an identification of the offender’s risk of harm and the offender’s likelihood of re-offending. When completed it provides an assessment of low, medium, high and very high. The Prison Service will collate and share information with colleague agencies in preparation for release.

MAPPA Offences (this group will include offenders subject to Sex Offender Registration) Offenders subject to Harassment procedures Offenders who present a risk to children (if not captured within MAPPA) Offenders disqualified from working with children Offenders who have been identified within the Dangerous and Severe Personality Disordered (DSPD) group

7. Interventions with Offenders
Sex Offender Treatment Programmes
The National Probation Service – Teesside has a specialist sex offender team trained to deliver a nationally accredited sex offender treatment programme. The sex offender groupwork programme involves intensive groupwork intervention with offenders in the community, taking up to 12 months to complete the full programme. This is in addition to the ongoing monitoring and supervision that is part of the offender’s Community Order or licence period. The programme is based upon evidence-based research findings which have identified the most effective methods of reducing re-offending. It is designed to challenge attitudes and behaviours and teaches new ways of coping with situations and feelings. Offenders are helped to learn new ways of thinking and how to make clear decisions to avoid difficult places, situations and patterns of behaviour. There is a significant emphasis on increasing an offender’s levels of victim empathy. Attendance of an offender throughout the programme is regularly fed back into MAPPA so that progress and risk can be closely monitored and managed by all relevant agencies. An area of work which has developed in the last twelve months has been in the area of Internet sexual offending. Exploring new ways of working with this group of offenders will continue and in 2006/07 we will implement a new accredited programme ‘Internet Sexual Offending Treatment Programme’. A national organisation has also been established ‘Child Exploitation and on-line Protection Centre’ with the message being that on-line behaviour leads to off line

consequences for those children abused on the Internet. Multi agency risk management will develop links with CEOP and other organisations to develop approaches to tackle internet sex offending. To assist in the management of those difficult people who live in the community, Cleveland Police have an officer who is dedicated to using the powers found in the Sexual Offences Act 2003. Where needed, the officer will apply to the local court for a Sexual Offences Prevention Order which restricts movement and places obligations on an offender to prevent reoffending.

provide structured accommodation for offenders under the supervision of the Probation Service. Residents live in a structured regime which includes an overnight curfew. The Approved Premises are staffed at all times and the interior of the buildings and all exits are monitored by a range of CCTV cameras. The night staff remain awake and carry out regular checks around the building as well as random room checks. Offenders abide by a strict set of rules and failures to comply result in enforcement action being taken which will include a return to custody for a breach of a licence condition or return to court for a Community Order infringement. As well as providing a controlled environment to house offenders and monitor their whereabouts, Approved Premises also enable round the clock support and assistance to offenders to change their behaviour. Work is done by trained staff to challenge them about their behaviour and recognise the impact of their offending on victims and the local community. Staff also encourage them to acquire basic skills to change their lifestyle, boost employment opportunities and address future accommodation needs. All of this activity can contribute to a reduction in offending.

Approved Premises
Approved Premises were formally known as Bail and/or Probation hostels. They are owned by the National Probation Service for England and Wales and are managed by staff employed from local communities with the aim of Approved Premises being to protect the public from offenders who pose a significant risk of harm to others. As a central part of our approach to multi agency public protection, they

8. Other Agencies
A range of partners work with MAPPA. Here are just a few examples of the work they do: a) The Cleveland Diversion Team (CDT) is a multi agency team (Health, Social Services, Probation) working with mentally disordered offenders. CDT attend RMM/MAPPP meetings to identify those offenders who may have a mental illness or mental health problems. They can either provide a nursing assessment of their needs, liaise with mental health services if already known or refer to services where appropriate. CDT work alongside Probation staff to manage difficulties often presented by those with mental health problems. b) Social Services departments work closely with MAPPA, in adult protection through vulnerable adult procedures and with children through child protection procedures. All three procedures work alongside each other to ensure those most vulnerable members of society are protected. c) Accommodation is an essential element in ensuring those who pose the highest risk to society are visible to those who need to monitor their movements. Providing appropriate housing with proper risk assessment is essential to this ongoing monitoring of some offenders. Housing providers have continued to develop their understanding of this area of work and this will only be enhanced by HARP (Housing and Returning Prisoners Protocol) which will be introduced this year with all agencies striving to accommodate some of the most vulnerable and challenging people in our communities.

9. Focus on Victims
The National Probation Service Teesside continues to fulfil its statutory obligation to the victims of violent and sexual crime where the offender receives a custodial sentence of twelve months or more. The Domestic Violence Crime and Victims Act 2004 came into effect from July 2005 and this extended contact to victims of mentally disordered offenders. National Probation Service – Teesside employs two Victim Liaison Officers (VLOs) who work closely with other Criminal Justice Agencies to ensure a service is delivered to victims. We also work with Offender Managers to enable a victim perspective is a central part of work with offenders. Information is also shared with victims regarding an offender’s sentence, particularly notification of significant aspects of release arrangements including offering the victim the opportunity to request additional licence conditions that may offer them protection following an offender’s release. VLOs play a vital role in risk management by sharing information with police and others involved in MAPPA as to victims’ views and any feelings of continued risks posed to specific individuals. The VLOs also work in partnership with the Witness Care Unit Victim Support and Youth Offender Service to provide a comprehensive service to victims of serious offending in Teesside. We have also been involved with other Criminal Justice Agencies working to deliver the recently introduced Victim Code of Practice. his current partner. He had served a custodial sentence and had recently been released from prison. Previous convictions also involved offences against a child of a former partner. Despite the victims residing outside of the Teesside area the VLO was able to contact all victims and represent their current concerns to the Multi agency Public Protection Panel. As a result of this information, an exclusion zone was included in the offender’s licence which prevented him going to certain places where contact with his victims may have occurred. A ‘no contact with previous victims’ condition was also included in his licence. Both practical and emotional support to the victims was offered through the Police Domestic Violence Unit and ongoing contact via the VLOs made available, if required.

10. Strategic Management Board
The Strategic Management Board consists of senior members of the responsible authority (Police, Probation and Prison Service) and other ‘Duty to Co-operate’ agencies including: The monitoring and review group continues to meet on a bi-monthly basis which is still chaired by a senior manager from Social Services and now has a senior member from the health service sitting on it. The purpose of the group is to oversee and question the decisions made by operational staff who manage those living within the community and who are subject to MAPPA. This process has become invaluable as it acts as a safety net to make sure that the correct strategies and registration have taken place. Two further working parties have now been established with representation from a number of duty to co-operate agencies and lay advisors to focus on communications and procedures. There has been an increased number of those entering into the MAPPA remit who have been convicted of domestic violence. These people are automatically registered as high risk or Level 2, because on conviction and being sentenced to a Community Domestic Violence Programme, the risk to victims increases. Research has proven that the risk increases once the perpetrator commences the course. The Probation Service now employs mentors to help victims whilst their partner attends the course, thus the victim is supported whilst the perpetrator is managed until the risk diminishes. The two lay advisors are still in post and are members of the Strategic Management Board. As part of the role the lay advisors have developed a communications strategy to assist in promoting MAPPA and the work it entails.

MAPPA – The First Five Years It is now just over 5 years since the implementation of the Criminal Justice and the Courts’ Services Act 2000 that led to the formation of the Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements, commonly known as MAPPA. The document “MAPPA – the First Five Years: A National Overview of the Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements 2001 – 2006” is available via the web site: http:// www.probation.homeoffice.gov.uk /output/page30.asp

The role of the SMB is to oversee and direct local MAPPA arrangements. This is achieved by working towards a strategic business plan which is updated every time the board meets. There has been work completed on how best to engage the health service at a local level. Although attendance at meetings has improved from mental health services, a piece of work has been commenced to improve the attendance of GPs at both Level 2 and Level 3 meetings. In the same vein, work is ongoing to engage housing providers within the MAPPA arena, presentations and meetings have been completed to the providers, however, further marketing is now being considered. In addition, a process is being considered by the Strategic Management Board to identify the true cost of all agencies involved in the MAPPA process.

11. Lay Advisors
As individuals involved in various community affairs and as mothers whose families have grown up in the area, we have a keen interest in how our public protection arrangements are met to ensure not only the safety of our families, friends and neighbours, but the safety of all who live in our communities. The role that lay advisors take has been described both as that of ‘critical friend’ to those with overall responsibility for ensuring that the structure of these activities is ‘fit for purpose’ and embedded in the activities of all the agencies concerned. We do not have direct contact with the management of individual cases or with offenders, although a thorough induction has ensured that we have seen at first hand the activities carried out under MAPPA. We like to think that our contribution is about introducing an aspect of common sense when discussing the management of the quite demanding cases known as the ‘critical few’. However, the ultimate responsibility of the day-to-day management of violent and sexual offenders remains with the professionals. As members of the public, we are reassured to see the way in which all MAPPP members are committed to ensuring that the risks to the public are managed as effectively as possible – both through court -imposed limits, and through the various approaches taken both within prisons and in the community after release from prison or on community programmes, to help offenders to change their patterns of behaviour. We have also been impressed by the emphasis placed on the feelings of victims and families.
11

As with any organisation, the process is one of continual striving for improvement. When things go tragically wrong, it is natural and all too easy to ‘point the finger’ at faceless bodies and presume they just ‘don’t care’. Having seen the calibre of the individuals concerned, we have found them to be caring, sensible, professional individuals who acknowledge that they are doing their jobs to keep not just our families protected – but also their own. Hence, we look forward to the next year to even better links with the community to further this aim.

12. Statistical Analysis
2005/06 has seen an increase in the number of offenders subject to Sex Offender Prevention Orders. This has been a targeted intervention on behalf of the Public Protection Unit to put in place as many protective measures as possible to protect the public from registered sex offenders and to remind them of the risks they pose to the public and the threat of a custodial sentence should they breach any requirement of the SOPO. Emphasis on close monitoring and surveillance of sex offenders has resulted in registration requirements that have been breached being dealt with speedily and ensuring the Police are aware of where sex offenders are living. The reduction in the number of registered sex offenders this year is due to those people sentenced in Teesside, but have now moved out of the area. Last year’s report included all offenders registered in Teesside, but who had since moved, whereas this year we have only included those who are currently residing in the Teesside area. This provides a more accurate picture of the current risk in Teesside. The significant increase in 2005/06 has been the number of violent and other offenders being considered at both Multi Agency Public Protection Panels and Risk Management Meetings with the largest increase being those considered at a ‘Level two’ Risk Management Meeting (Category 3). It is important to remember that these do not represent the offenders who pose the most serious risk of harm; the majority of these people have been involved in domestic violence or have behavioural problems/psychiatric issues. The numbers of offenders referred to MAPPA convicted of domestic violence has tripled in 2005/06, compared to 2004/05.
12

The reasons for this include the introduction of a specific programme delivered by the Probation Service, but emphasising the need to work in partnership. For this reason all offenders who attend the programme are considered at a Multi agency Risk Management Meeting. Two Serious Further Offences were committed during the last 12 months period. One offender, registered at Level 3 since November 2003, and not subject to Statutory Supervision, was acquitted of Wounding with Intent, but within the same month committed Kidnap and Robbery of a male under 18 using a Sword. He received three years’ imprisonment, The second offender registered at Level 2 since March 2004, due to Domestic Violence, was de-registered in May 2005, but re-registered in July due to incidents of further Domestic Violence with a new partner. Later in 2005 he was charged with Aggravated Burglary and Wounding with Intent as well as Witness Intimidation. He remains remanded in custody at this time.
