THE sexual abuse of children must be tackled by a broader range of government measures, the NSPCC has urged.
In a call to "strengthen" public confidence, the charity has urged authorities to reveal how sex offenders are being monitored after release and what information is being given to the community.
Mary Marsh, the NSPCC's chief executive, added: "Most perpetrators of sex offences never come into contact with the criminal justice system so it is important that abusers are encouraged to come forward and that treatment is offered to all sex abusers, not only those who are convicted."
In annual reports due later this month, the Home Office will reveal the number of sex and violent offenders currently being monitored in England and Wales.

How very true but sad is that,
