I finished post incarceration supervision recently. Prior to completion I discussed with my PO the registry and its obvious shortcomings, I have lost count how many times we had this discussion. This PO says to me, “I have an offender on my supervision list that just re-offended,” (I suppose he thought this an argument in defense of the registry). My response? “Presumably this offender was on restrictions and presumably this offender is registered and yet he re-offended.” Again I lose count how many times I heard this PO say, “Well if the registry saves just one child it is worth it.” The registry does not / has not saved one.
