I have been asked to reply on behalf of the Home Department.

A Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) can be imposed where an offender has been convicted of a relevant sexual or violent offence and prohibitions are necessary to protect the public from serious sexual harm.

Data on the total number of registered sex offenders who were sent to custody for breach of their SOPO is published in the Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) annual report. Data for Lancashire is set out in the table below.

A further breakdown of this data below MAPPA area is not collected centrally. The MAPPA reports for 2009-13 may be found on the website. Reports published prior to 2009 may be found on the national archives website.

  Number of registered sex offenders sent to custody for breach of a SOPO in Lancashire

2011-12 0
