Myths surrounding sex offenders

Both Circles UK and Staffordshire and West Midlands Probation were asked to discuss myths surrounding sex offender (re)intergration, community engagement and recidivism.

  1. All sex offenders will, and want to, reoffend, so allowing them
    back into society is a mistake.
  2. Community notification makes communities safer.
  3. Excluding sex offenders from our neighbourhoods makes communities safer.

Chris Wilson from Circles UK addresses all three questions (MP3).

Staffordshire and West Midlands Probation addresses question one (MP3), question two (MP3) and question three (MP3).
