Pedophile Register Given Boost

The ACT Government will spend $100,000 a year on its new child-sex offender register.
Police Minister John Hargreaves will reveal the funding in tomorrow's Budget.
The register will replace the more informal relationship of sharing intelligence about paedophiles between Australia's police forces.
"Under the register anyone convicted of sexual or other serious offences against children will be legally obliged to notify police of their address, places they frequent, car registration and other personal details," Mr Hargreaves said.
"[It] is an important measure for this Government to guarantee the safety of our children."
The register would eventually form part of a national database.
The ACT Government had been waiting for the states and territories to agree on the national register, but drafted its own legislation in the meantime.
It has already presented this legislation to the Assembly.
The proposal is being backed by victims of crime groups, but civil libertarians have questioned it, saying released offenders still had rights.
