The CCC is reviewing the operation of the Child Protection (Offender Reporting and Offender Prohibition Order) Act 2004 (Qld) (the Act), which seeks to protect children from the risks posed by people living in the community who have been convicted of sexual and other serious offences against children.

The CCC is required by section 74C of the Act to conduct the review, which aims to determine: 

  • how the Act operates, including policies, training, and practices that give life to the Act; and
  • how well the options provided in the Act protect children, and manage or mitigate the risks posed by offenders defined under the Act.

To assist with our review, we are asking for people to share their views on the Act. We are particularly keen to hear from those agencies involved in administering the Act, those who administer other legislation that aims to protect children or to manage offenders, and those with personal experience of the Act, including offenders. 

A discussion paper titled ‘Protecting the lives of children and their sexual safety’ has been published on the CCC’s website and includes a series of questions which seek feedback on the Act’s application, operation and effectiveness. Submissions can be made on public, anonymous or confidential basis.

Submissions are due by close of business on Monday 14 November 2022 and can be made by emailing [email protected] or via post to CPOROPO Review, Crime and Corruption Commission, GPO Box 3123, Brisbane QLD 4001. If you cannot write to us, please refer to the discussion paper for instructions on how to make an oral submission.

At the conclusion of the review, the CCC will deliver a report to the Speaker for tabling in the Legislative Assembly.
