Registered Pedophiles, Sex Offenders Taking Overseas Trips

WA pedophiles named on the national child offenders register are taking overseas sex trips and moving into new neighbourhoods without notifying police.
Thirty-two West Australians on the register have been busted this year for breaching reporting requirements, up from 26 last year and seven in 2005.
And The Sunday Times can reveal that just one of the 1300 West Australians on the register has been placed on it for life, with others on it for 15, eight or four years.
The national register opened in 2005. There were 436 West Australians on it on June 30, 2005, and 726 on June 30 last year.
Australian National Child Offenders Register state co-ordinator Martyn Clancy-Lowe said a dedicated operational group of detectives had been formed in WA to target pedophiles who tried to dissolve into the community and evade their reporting requirements.
Police warned those who had forgotten or had made honest mistakes.
"(Those charged) are what we'd class as serious ones," Mr Clancy-Lowe said. "From our perspective, they're deliberate breaches. They're flaunting their requirements.
"Some think well they've done their time (in jail), now they come out and start again. They just don't update their personal details."
Police and Mr Clancy-Lowe said they would like the power to stop some pedophiles from living near schools, parks and playgrounds.
"In certain circumstances, say for people who are higher risk or where their offending was of that type where they targeted schools or playgrounds, we should have the power to review where they live before they live there," Mr Clancy-Lowe said.
"You don't really want to place someone next to a park or an access way to a park. And I think that's what the public would like.''
He said some West Australians on the register travelled alone to South- East Asian countries which are renowned for sex tourism. He suspected some "get up to no good" with children.
Anyone convicted of sexual or other serious offences against children must give police their address, employment details, car registration and details of places they frequent.
Pedophiles must also hand over information about clubs they belong to and details of their travel plans.
The information is collated and placed on the Federal Government's CrimTrac database, which can be accessed by special police units around the country.
Notorious offender Otto Seamus Darcy-Searle is one of the pedophiles free in WA.
After serving an 11-year jail term for 104 sex offences against boys, he is subject to a 12-month supervision order and has been put on the register. He must notify police of his address, employment, leisure activities, travel plans and social contacts.
