Informal visits by police officers, seeking entry by consent, to the home of a registered sex offender who was subject to notification requirements were lawful

Published:

Informal visits by police officers, seeking entry by consent, to the home of a registered sex offender who was subject to notification requirements were lawful. The scheme for the protection of vulnerable persons from sex offenders including notification requirements placed on the offender, informal monitoring and the power of authorised search and entry was not disproportionate.

Hugh Southey QC was involved in this case.
