Abstract

The full text of this dissertation is available only to University of Leicester members. Please log in with your CFS username and password when prompted.The current study examined the ability of the RM2000 variables to predict non-compliance with sex offender notification requirements amongst 200 male RSOs aged between 21 and 85 years who had served a term of imprisonment and were on the Sex Offenders Register for at least seven years. Attitudes toward the notification requirements and motivation to manage risk were also compared between compliant and non-compliant RSOs. Results indicated that the RM2000 variable sets somewhat improved predictions of compliance group, with age at commencement of risk and number of criminal appearances demonstrating particular importance. No clear differences in attitudes and motivation to manage risk were found between the two groups although the importance of the relationship between police and RSOs was highlighted.University of Leiceste
