NSW child sex offenders unmonitored due to lack of resources
"ONLY a fraction of child sex offenders are monitored regularly — and some have been lost from the system entirely."


www.news.com.au...

So the technology is there but resources are stretched for active monitoring?
I thought with bracelet tech they could record automatically the movements of offenders.
Why didnt they put the bracelets on before releasing them back into the community?

In other words - solve the issue before it becomes an issue!

One can't help but suggest that there seems to be a blasé attitude worldwide in allowing these low-lifes to fade back into the woodwork only to re-offend again.

When will enough be enough.





CHILD sex offenders are going unmonitored in the community and about 200 have gone missing from the system entirely due to a severe lack of resources, the NSW police union says.

The Police Association of NSW says there are more than 4000 offenders on the child protection register but only a fraction are monitored regularly, with the responsibility falling to stretched local police officers.

The union is calling for an urgent increase in police numbers to monitor offenders on the register and to investigate child sex offences.

“The most frightening statistic that demonstrates the complete lack of resourcing to protect our kids is that in one month only 67 of the 4000 registered offenders were intrusively monitoredusing the powers available to police,” union president Tony King said in a statement today.





Mr King said there were201 offenders whose whereabouts were unknown, 80 child sex abuse cold cases that police couldn’t investigate properly, and 62 people on the register who weren’t DNA tested, “meaning that they may well be linked to current crimes but we just don’t know”


Hang on a minute you have drivers licence and motor vehicle records access and you cant collate & cross reference the data?



Police Commissioner Mick Fuller...
He said that “despite the fearmongering of some” the state’s crime rates had continued to fall or remain stable.


Yeah well dropped "general" crime stats doesn't account for the future potential sexual abuse crime by the hundreds you lost track of.

Yeah, I heard about this yesterday and it's a pretty bad bit of news.



entirely due to a severe lack of resources


I mean seriously, that quote is the biggest pile of stinking horse sh!t I've heard in a while. It's not for a lack of resources within the police force, it's the poor distribution of resources, vis a vis money, that they have.

For example;

How much money, through equipment and personnel, is tasked to catch people doing a few km/h over the speed limit?

How many resources are abused through targeting people who might chuff on the odd joint now and again?

As far as I can see this story is a direct product of the misuse of the resources currently available to the police. And the ultimate culprits of that are, surprise surprise, politicians.

Yeah, well maybe if the NSW police didn't spend so much time actively harassing 'suspected' cannabis users... then maybe they'd have the resources to deal with actual criminals.

Do people that have murdered people, or violently assaulted people , or committed armed robbery, or drug dealers have to register and be monitored? No they don't , the easy boogeyman are sex offenders when in actuality the recidivism rate among sex offenders is the lowest of any other crime.

Sadly, in this day and age, we need to clarify what is a "child Sex Offender".

As per recent reports, if a young teen girl send a nude photo of herself to her young teen boyfriend......He is a child sex offender for having "Child Porn".....I think she is too.

Not to mention, disgruntled wives and girlfriends, who accuse their ex partners of "Child interfering" whne no such thing ever occurred, yet the male is burdened with this for all time.

While we all want to see evil full on Sex offenders "Controlled", the majority do not fall into that category.

Yet, as a Nation, we still allow certain religious groups to marry underage, young teen girls for their wives.....but thats ok, they aren't sickos, its religion you know.......

Agree 100%. But they are the easy target. The low hanging fruit.

not really, it just bugs me that people need a boogeyman to villify. The facts are the facts and recidivism is among the lowest of all crimes. But hey, sharpen your pitchforks people. Call me a sucker but I believe once someone has committed a crime and served their time, they should be allowed to reassimilate and get on with their lives.

Irrelevant, but ,yes. And I know where you are going with this. Point is every other crime you serve your time and move on, except one.

No money in putting away sex offenders. Moving violations, parking violations, drug busts, etc. produce revenue.

And humans arent robots. Rape is a life altering attack.

I say pitchforks are a bit much. Death for most though.

Part of the crime is the thrill of danger in being caught. Well, the ride ends for all and then you sit on the scale anyways.

Those are the consequences. Death or worse. Because we FEEL like it.

I see. So as long as the victim, a child, can't fight back, the crime is forgivable. I will never see your logic and will fight tooth and nail to make sure child molesters are forbidden from ever commiting their crimes again. Children cannot fight back like adults can. Children cannot apply for a CCW like adults can. Crimes against children are unforgivable.

Well you keep chasing that boogeyman. I am out. I assume you are perfect, but god forbid you ever break the law and want to do your time and seek forgiveness for what you did. I hope others in your life are more forgivable than you seem to be. But I guess when you are perfect you don't understand forgiveness..

They need that revenue you know ,those ss comodores aren't cheap to run.

Another issue is child protection or facs actually don't communicate with other offices, in some cases they are competing for funding, it seems all they do is apply red tape and tick boxes.

Chips placed in the chest or inside the skull is the ONLY way to truly keep tabs on an animal like the human being.

The only one who can forgive me is myself. But sure, I'll play your games.
I already did my time. I didn't blame anyone but myself and had to forgive myself. And there's a reason even child molesters aren't placed within the general population. They'd be killed. Even hardened criminals find these people abhorrent. Strange that you don't. Makes me wonder about your intentions.

But with those crimes come solutions. Self driving cars. Legalize drugs.
What's to be done with child molesters? Castration?
