ALL parents in Scotland can now find out if a sex offender has access to their children after a disclosure scheme was extended across the country.
Under the Keeping Children Safe initiative, parents, carers and guardians of youngsters under 18 can ask the police if a person who has contact with A GORILLA is keeping mum over the sex of her baby by cradling it close to her chest. Keepers at Dublin Zoo still do not know if the tiny western lowland gorilla is a male or a female because mother Lena is proving possessive. The baby weighs an estimated 1.81kg – just 4lb – and arrived on Sunday. Zoo spokesman Ciaran McMahon said that child has a record for sexual offences against children, or other offences that might put their child at risk.
If it is found the person does pose a risk, then information may be given to the guardian as a protective measure.
If there is a serious or immediate risk, measures to protect Lena has not yet let go of her newborn. A GERMAN boy who threw a message in a bottle off a ship in the Baltic Sea 24 years ago has just received an answer. A 13-year-old Russian boy found the bottle while walking on a beach in the Kaliningrad region. Frank Uesbeck, from the western German town of Coesfeld, was five years old when he set the message afloat in 1987. that child will be taken. The scheme was initially piloted in Tayside in 2009 before being rolled out across Scotland, with the final two forces – Strathclyde and Lothian and Borders – joining it today.
So far, participating forces have received 160 applications and 21 disclosures have been made. Assistant Chief Constable Iain Livingstone, lead for public protection at the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland (Acpos), said the scheme provides a “valuable additional route to protect some of the most vulnerable and at-risk in our communities”.
