| Cataloged on:
Aug. 13, 2008
ANNOTATION: The degree to which sex offender recidivism is affected by community notification is investigated. Sections of this report include: executive summary; introduction; literature review; data and methodology; results for three-year recidivism rates by groups, overall recidivism rates by first risk level assignment, comparison of notification and pre-notification group offenders, time to sex offense recidivism, time to non-sex offense recidivism, and time to general recidivism; discussion; and conclusion. "The findings suggest that broad community notification has had a significant deterrent effect on sexual recidivism" (p. 3).
