Article: The Management of Serious Violent or Sexual Offenders who are Mobile across the European Union: The Challenge of Mobile Offenders (2015)

By Sarah Hilder and Hazel Kemshall (2015)

Summary: This article reports on an EU funded project examining the use of existing information exchange mechanisms, and monitoring, management and tracking systems available to EU Member States for use with serious violent or sexual offenders who travel across EU borders. It focuses on transfers and information exchange, on those offenders who move for short periods, or who move at the end of sentence or sanction. It also presents up to date data for probation staff and draws on good practice to offer practical tools for practitioners to assess potential mobility, and
to assist in comprehensive and speedy information exchange. Broader areas of improvement for the wider EU are also identified.
