MAPPA - Northamptonshire Local Working Arrangements
MAPPA (Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements) are a set of arrangements to manage the risk posed by the most serious sexual and violent offenders (MAPPA-eligible offenders) under the provisions of sections 325 to 327B of the Criminal Justice Act 2003. (b) They bring together the Police, Probation and Prison Services in England and Wales into what is known as the MAPPA Responsible Authority. (c) A number of other agencies are under a Duty to Co-operate (DTC) with the Responsible Authority. These include Social Services, Health Service, Youth Offending Teams, Jobcentre Plus and Local Housing and Education Authorities
The Aim of MAPPA is to protect the public, including previous victims of crime, from serious harm by sexual and violent offenders. The documents below detail the MAPPA arrangements for Northamptonshire.
