MAPPA Annual Report 2003


1. National Introduction

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.

Paul Goggins
2. Introduction

Dorset Police and National Probation Service Dorset are the Responsible Authority
which make multi-agency public protection arrangements for the assessment and
management of the risks posed by sexual, violent, and other offenders who may
cause serious harm to the public of Dorset.

Multi-agency protocols have been agreed by Police, Probation, Health, Housing,


and Social Services for the assessment and management of sex, violent, and other
offenders.

There is a two tier structure under the arrangements.


• Multi Agency Public Protection Panels (MAPPPs) consider the few most serious
cases, where the risk of serious harm is considered to be imminent.
• Risk Assessment and Management Panels (RAMPs) consider cases requiring
multi agency involvement but harm is not considered to be imminent.

This second annual report provides details and an update of local arrangements and
gives contact points for any additional enquiries including agencies other than Police
and Probation.
