Labor waters down sex offender supervision

Published:

The LNP will move to restore face-to-face monitoring of dangerous sex offenders in the community after Labor snuck in regulations watering down supervision of dangerous sex offenders in the community.

Corrective services officers may ‘remotely’ supervise offenders in the community under Labor’s coronavirus measures introduced in June.

Shadow Minister for Police Dan Purdie today said the LNP would move a disallowance motion in Parliament to reverse the regulation change.

“Any reduction in supervision of dangerous sex offenders is completely unacceptable,” Mr Purdie said.

“The Palaszczuk Labor Government has clearly dropped the ball on supervising dangerous sex offenders in the community.

“There is no excuse for cutting back on strict monitoring and that’s why the LNP will move to scrap this unjustifiable regulation.

“The Palaszczuk Labor Government has created a huge loophole in the supervision of dangerous sex offenders and put children’s safety at risk.

“Serious sexual predators should not be on the loose and effectively unmonitored in the community.

“Repeat sex offenders need more monitoring, not less.”

Mr Purdie said an LNP Government would introduce mandatory GPS tracking for life for repeat serious sex offenders and establish a public child sex offenders’ register.

“There is nothing more important than keeping our kids safe,” Mr Purdie said.

“Every parent has a right to know if there is a paedophile in their suburb.”

The disallowance motion will be debated during an upcoming sitting week, before the next state election.
