What are sex offender notification requirements?

The sex offender notification requirements, sometimes known as the 'sex offenders register', were introduced in 1997.

Anyone convicted of a sexual offence is required to tell the police their details, including where they are living and whether there are any children under 18 in the household.

If the offender does not do this, it is a criminal offence, with a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
