Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) are the statutory arrangements for managing sexual and violent offenders in the community in a way that mitigates the risk that they pose as much as possible. The process is ensured by the Responsible Authority which consists of police, prison and probation services and they are charged with the duty and responsibility for the assessment and management of risk of all MAPPA offenders. Children and Young People Social Care have a 'duty to co-operate' with the Responsible Authority under section 325(3) of the Criminal Justice Act (2003).
