Managing Sex Offender Risk looks at the current statistical rise in known cases of sexual offences towards women and children. Paedophilia has become a growing problem, and this growing issue is not always recognised. Managing Sex Offender Risk highlights the problems of identifying and punishing sex offenders. This book assesses various methodologies and approaches to dealing with sex offenders and assuring that they do not relapse after intervention. Managing Sex Offender Risk concludes by looking at community based action plans for dealing with the protection from and prevention of sexual crimes on minors, and gives the statistics behind sexual crimes related to minors. -- childRIGHT
