Re-offenders

Volume 499: debated on Wednesday 11 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many offenders supervised under level 1 multi-agency public protection arrangements have reoffended in each of the last five years. (298083)

Data on the multi-agency public protection arrangements (MAPPA) are published in local Area MAPPA Annual Reports. The MAPPA Annual Reports have included in each of the last five years the number of offenders managed at levels 2 and 3 who have been charged with serious further offences—but not all offences. Areas have not so far been asked to report on charges of re-offending against MAPPA level 1 offenders, so the data requested are currently unavailable.

The purpose of the MAPPA Annual Report is to show what multi-agency intervention and resources bring to local public protection arrangements. The focus of the data, therefore, has been upon the offenders managed at level 2 and 3 rather than at level 1, where offenders are managed through ordinary agency management.

However, in order to provide data on the whole offender population eligible for multi-agency management and resources, since April 2009 all areas have been required to record instances of offenders managed at level 1 of MAPPA who are charged with serious further offences (as well as those managed at levels 2 and 3), with a view to inclusion in next year’s annual reports.
