Abstract: In Korea, registration and notification policy on sex offenders are among the most widely discussed and debated policies with electronic monitoring system. Youth Sexual Protection Act of 2000 first mandated sex offender notification policies. Initially, the act of 2000 ordered the Korean Commission on Youth Protection (KCYP) provide public the names of 169 convicted offenders against children using internet website on August 2001. Since then, the sex offender notification law has been changed in its contents, details, and major intentions. Even though public’s view and perception of the notification policy are described as valuable and important for public safety and the right to know for the public, there is lack of data regarding how sex offenders perceive and value this policy which they are subject to. The present study proposed to address this gap through an examination of the sex offenders’ opinion on the notification policy and what differentiate the perception of public notification law among sex offenders subject to notification policy.

Abstract: Within a relatively short period of time, community notification laws have been passed by the federal government and legislature of every state. Hailed as a solution to one of the more emotionally-charged issues related to crime, these laws authorize local law enforcement officials to publicize the personal and residential information of convicted sex offenders following their release from prison. Although researchers and other social commentators have begun to examine the effects of community notification on targeted sex offenders and on criminal justice practices and practitioners, they have yet to consider the consequences of the policy for different types of communities. In this study, we combine census data with information extracted from sex offender registration files to examine the relationship between community characteristics and the residential patterns of high-risk sex offenders. To the extent that community notification makes it easier for affluent communities to prevent sex offenders from living in the immediate area, the policy may inadvertently contribute to the clustering of sex offenders in those communities least able to protect themselves from the threat.

"A Time-Series Analysis of New York State’s Sex Offender Registration and Notification Law" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society, Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, Jacksonville, FL, Mar 05, 2008 <Not Available>. 2020-01-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p228575_index.html>

Abstract: Public outrage toward sexual offenses and the severe consequences that result from sexual victimization has prompted federal and state governments to enact registration and community notification laws to better protect communities from sexual offending. Despite the widespread use of these laws, limited empirical research has been conducted to examine the impact of registration on public safety. Therefore, utilizing time-series analyses, this study examined differences in sexual offense arrest rates before and after the enactment of New York State’s Sex Offender Registration Act. Results provide no support for the effectiveness of registration and community notification laws in reducing sexual offending.

Abstract: This presentation will focus on analyses examining whether broad sex offender registration and community notification policies have had unintended effects on prosecutor and judicial behaviors and is part of a larger study funded by the National Institute of Justice and entitled Evaluating the Effectiveness of Sex Offender Registration and Notification Policies for Reducing Sexual Violence against Women (E. Letourneau, PI). Arrest, prosecution, and conviction charges were available for all adults (and minors charged as adults) charged with any criminal offense in South Carolina from 1990-2005. During this period, more than 25,000 sex crimes were charged. This study will examine the rates of plea bargains (from felony sex offense charges to non-sex offense charges) before and after registration (1995) and notification (1999) policies were enacted. Likewise, we will examine the likelihood of prosecutors moving forward with felony sex offense charges and judges convicting on felony sex offense charges before and after these two polices were enacted. Results will be compared with the rates of plea bargains, prosecutor and judicial decisions for nonsexual crimes, including assault and robbery. Previous analyses based on juvenile justice data indicated significant unintended effects following registration for felony sexual offenses but not for other serious person offenses.

Abstract: Focused deterrence programs are widely used across the United States as a means of combating gang related gun violence. Recently, a number of these programs have integrated custom offender notifications as a means of delivering their anti-violence crime prevention message. At this time, little is known about the effects of this strategy. The present study uses propensity score matching to assess the outcomes of custom offender notifications used as part of Cincinnati Initiative to Reduce Violence.
