The Operation and Experience of Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA)

Introduction

Convicted Sex offenders are currently managed through Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA). This research was undertaken to identify and assess specific operational practices in relation to sexual offenders subject to MAPPA. It was led by Professor Hazel Kemshall at De Montfort University.


Aims of Project

The research had two primary aims:

  1. To identify and assess specific operational practices in relation to sexual offenders subject to Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) Level 2 and 3 in terms of risk assessment, supervision, surveillance, interventions, enforcement, compliance, breach, recall and so on.
  2. To identify and assess the experience of subjection to MAPPA Level 2 and 3 and the impact of this on offending-related behaviour of Registered Sexual Offenders (RSOs) convicted of offences against children. To be explored from the viewpoint of both offenders and those working within those agencies represented at MAPPA Level 2 and 3.
