The Act requires particular offenders, who have been convicted of committing sexual or other serious offences against children, to keep police informed of their whereabouts and other personal details for a period of time. This is to reduce the likelihood that they will re-offend, to assist the investigation and prosecution of any future offences that they may commit, and for other related purposes.
