We have received a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 for the following:
1) How many RSO’s were known to be missing as of the 01.09.2012?
2) Of these how many have been missing for more than a year?
We released the following information on 31 October 2012.
In relation to the number of registered sexual offenders who were known to be missing as of the 01.09.2012, there were 243 RSOs recorded as missing. Of these, 237 have been missing for more than one year. This total is only valid for the date in question because the information is dynamic and will change as arrests are made or new cases come to light through proactive intelligence led policing or routine visits to registered offenders.
