No 'hide and seek' for sex-offenders near schools

By Te Ao - Māori News

A members bill that would require the Department of Corrections to notify schools of sex offenders placed in their local communities was put in the ballot today by National MP Matt Doocey.

It will ensure all schools will be notified of the placement of a sex offender two days before an offender's release, or three days before housing an offender at a new address.
