Child offenders who fail to report to have names and photos published

24 July 2013

Child sex offenders whose whereabouts are unknown and who provide misleading information or otherwise fail to comply with their reporting conditions could have their name and image published on a website under new child protection measures announced today.

Attorney General John Rau says that a Government amendment to legislation currently before the Parliament will allow new powers for the Commissioner of Police to better monitor offenders.
