Queensland police want Bill amended giving them access to pedophiles’ online profiles
Pedophiles will be required to hand over passwords and usernames for chatrooms and social media accounts
under tough new reporting requirements being considered by State Parliament.
Child sex offenders will also be required to report to police up to four times a year
and alert them every time they have contact with a child, other than irregular, incidental
contact, under the Child Protection (Offender Reporting) and Other Legislation Amendment
Bill 2014, introduced by Police Minister Jack Dempsey.
But the number of years they need to report has been reduced from eight years to five
for a first offence and from 15 years to 10 years for a second offence. Those who reoffend
repeatedly will still be subject to lifetime reporting requirements, however.
A spokesman for Mr Dempsey said the social media crackdown would ensure “police can
effectively monitor offenders and keep children safe”.
“The Queensland Government is committed to making this the safest state in which
to live and raise a family,” he said.
“The Child Protection Offender Reporting and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2014
delivers on a commitment to increase reporting for child sex offenders.”
But not everyone is happy with the changes. In submissions to the Legal Affairs
and Community Safety Committee, which is currently considering the Bill, the Bar
Association of Queensland and the Queensland Law Society raised privacy concerns.
“Offenders have not previously had to report these details to police,” the Bar Association submission states.
“In our view, a blanket requirement that offenders provide their passwords to police in all cases
infringes on the privacy of offenders to a greater extent than is reasonably necessary to safely
manage the risks to children.”
The law society’s submission said while it understood the need for the reporting
requirement, it believed it should be “adequately balanced with the rights and
liberties of reportable offenders” and measures must be taken to ensure that privacy
is maintained and protected against incidents such as fraud or release.
The Bill also includes a provision which allows police to enter the home of
a sex offender who is subject to mandatory reporting requirements in a bid to locate them.
