Green Light For Paedophile Register

A NATIONAL register of child sex offenders should be operational by the middle of next year after an agreement yesterday by Australian police ministers.
Ministers meeting in Melbourne pledged to develop complementary legislation for the register of convicted pedophiles.
Based on an existing NSW database, it will include the names, addresses, employment and car registration details of child sex offenders in every state and territory.
The details will be available to law enforcement agencies but not the public.
NSW Police Minister John Watkins said the register would allow police to track the movements of convicted pedophiles around Australia.
"Very clearly we need a national scheme because a registered sex offender in NSW can currently go interstate," he said.
"Similarly, a sex offender in another state can travel to NSW, and even though they then become subject to the legislation, they may not register, and that's a problem."
Other states and territories agreed to develope draft legislation to allow the development of the database.
Federal Justice Minister Chris Ellison welcomed the agreement, saying the register would allow Australia to sign International child protection agreements.
