Corrections-School-Notification-of-Sex-Offenders-Amendment-Bill

Currently, the Department of Corrections is placing some sex offenders in a community without informing the local school or schools. This bill seeks to ensure that, when a sex offender is placed in a community, the principals of the local schools are notified of this placement. By receiving notification from the Department of Corrections, local schools will be able to make informed decisions about the risk of the sex offenders placement.
