To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many individuals (a) convicted of a sex offence, (b) imprisoned for more than 12 months for violence and (c) assessed as being high risk there are on the Violent and Sex Offenders Register; and how many times the database has been accessed in each year since 1997.
I have been asked to reply.
ViSOR was introduced nationally only in 2005. It is routinely used by a large number of staff on a daily basis for the purposes of case management, risk assessment, information and intelligence sharing, and risk management planning. Data regarding the recorded levels of access are not collected.
